Dentists Provide Free Dental Services

PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (WSAZ) -- Dozens of people in Portsmouth Ohio took advantage of free dental services at Dr. Murray's Free Day of Dentistry Saturday.

Fillings and extractions were free to anyone with out dental insurance.

People were lined up outside the office before sunrise. Doctors pre-schedule elderly and disabled patients, so that they won't have to wait in line.

Patients say the services are a huge help, since dental care can be so expensive.

"One tooth could cost $300 to $400 to get worked on. This helps because I can spend that money on school clothes, or groceries, or gas to get to work and stuff," said patient Bob Waughtell.

Dr. Murray says this is his way of giving back to the community and loves being able to help any way he can.

This year makes the seventh year of free dentistry with Doctor Murray. The dental team was made up of Oral surgeon Dr. Mullendor, Dr. Hal Jeeter DDS and Dr. Tracy Murray DDS.
