Idaho dentists offer free dental care




IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) _ Two dentists in Idaho Falls say they
got such a response after offering free dental care to those in
need that they hope to do it next year as well.

The Post Register reports that dentists Brett Jacobson and James
Drake with Park West Dental Care donated more than $120,000 in
dental services to more than 120 patients earlier this year. The
Dentistry From the Heart event was open to those who couldn't
otherwise afford services.

Jacobson says his mother always taught him that as a health care
professional, the best thing he could do is to serve the community.
He says the dental clinic hopes to repeat the event every year.
