For some, dental care has been a tough expense to afford in this economy. But a local dentist wants to help put the smile back on some of those faces with an event called Dentistry with Hope.

Last year, Willow Dental Center provided free care for as many as 150 people. This year, the dental center is offering one free service: a cleaning, filling, or extraction.

Several dentists, oral surgeons, dental hygienists and volunteers will be on hand to help people in need.

"Sometimes moms and dads, they put others first before they take care of themselves. This gives everybody the opportunity to have free dentistry done, take care of their needs, and hopefully alleviate any discomfort they have," said Dr. Shawn Anderson with Willow Dental Group.

Dentistry with Hope takes place on Saturday, March 8, at 6753 N. Willow Ave. in Fresno. Registration begins at 7 a.m. The first 100 patients are guaranteed care. Patients will be seen on a first-come, first-serve basis.
