There was a “No Cost Dental Day for Kids” last Friday in Smyrna. Children came to the Fortis College Dental Clinic to get free dental exams, cleanings, fluoride treatments, x-rays, and sealants from dental professionals.
They provided services to 60-80 children from the local area. Fortis College Dental College is located at 2140 South Cobb Drive in Smyrna. For more info about Smyrna, click here.
