TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — A thousand Floridians will have an opportunity to receive free dental care through Florida Mission of Mercy in Tallahassee.

The Florida Dental Association and local dentists are providing cleanings, fillings, extractions, pediatric dentistry, root canals and more to everyone in need.

Marie Vandenberg, the Hope Community Program Director says having events like this gives people at the HOPE shelter an opportunity to have the dental care they need and it gives them a chance to feel better about themselves.

Vandenberg says she plans on sending as many people as possible from the shelter.

The event will happen on March 11 and 12 at Donald L. Tucker Civic Center from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The event is first come first serve and everyone must wear a mask.
