Free dental care event planned

White River Dental and Dr. Aaron Strickland will host the fourth annual Dentistry from the Heart event from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 12 at the office’s new facility at 2380 Merchants Mile in Columbus, across from Menards.

The program offers free dental care for those in need as well as veterans. Patients 18 years old or older may choose a filling, an extraction or a cleaning. Individuals are asked to arrive early — registration begins at 7:30 a.m. and patients will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis. The first 50 patients who register are guaranteed to be seen.

Three to four dentists and 20 staff members are volunteering for the event.
