Free dental care for kids on Friday

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Some children in the valley got dental care absolutely free Friday. 

The free dental service is sponsored by Dr. Edward Smith of Columbus. Dr. Smith says about 50 patients have taken advantage of this free dental care.

Dr. Smith says he does this every year on October 11 in honor of his son Russ.

"We do it every year on my son's birthday. We lost our son three years ago, so we like to do free dentistry on his birthday just to make it a happy day," said Dr. Smith. "It makes me feel good not to worry about charging anybody anything for it and the kids get good service."

Dr. Smith is taking no payments-- but is requesting any donation be made to the Chattahoochee Valley Court Appointed Special Advocates, also known as CASA.

CASA is an organization that provides care for abused and neglected children.
