MACON, Ga. — Maconites got a free chance to enjoy a new smile Saturday when Youth Dentistry of Macon supported Sharing Smiles Day by offering free dental care to families in need.
The program offered a standard teeth cleaning to uninsured parents and their children who may not be able to receive regular check ups.
Latanya Spaulding says she can't thank Youth Dentistry enough for being so considerate of the community.
"You need your teeth basically to eat, to chew food, right? But also because it makes you feel good. You don't realize how much your teeth builds your self-esteem, you know," she said.
Sharing Smiles Day is a volunteer event. It provided over 2,000 uninsured patients across the country with free dental care.
