WILLIAMSBURG -- The folks at Norge Dental Center have a saying - the smiles are on us.
It's the motto for their 3rd annual Dentistry From The Heart, which provides free dental services to the first 200 Williamsburg residents.
The first-come, first-served event is March 22 at the office located at 7450 Richmond Road. Registration will begin at 8:00 a.m. and patients will be seen through 4 p.m.
In the first two years, people camped out to be sure they get the care and haven't minded waiting in line for things like a tooth extraction, filling or cleaning. Several hygienists, dental assistants and others donate their time and talents to give thousands of dollars in free dental care.
This is the third year that Norge Dental Center has taken part in this event. Previous efforts contributed $150,000 in free dentistry and helped 500 people in Williamsburg.
This sort of outreach comes complete with improved smiles, relief from suffering, a warm sense of gratitude and a real reason to smile, officials say.
