Norge Dental Center will once again offer up free extractions, fillings and cleanings Saturday as part of its “Dentistry From the Heart” initiative.

Dentistry From the Heart at Norge Dental Center has provided 963 patients with $360,000-worth of free dental care since its inception in 2011.

Norge Dental Center’s Dentistry from the Heart is part of a larger national initiative of the same name that was created in 2001.

This event is first-come, first-served, and each patient can receive either one extraction, one filling or one cleaning from a qualified dental professional.

Dentistry From the Heart is slated for March 19. Registration starts at 7:30 a.m. and qualifying patients must be 18 years or older and unable to get dental care elsewhere. The first 200 patients are guaranteed to be seen.

Patients are encouraged to arrive early, dress appropriately for the weather and bring chairs, blankets, water and snacks, as they may be outside waiting to be seen.
