TYLER – Smith Dental Care has been offering free teeth cleaning, extractions and fillings for the past 14 years. There are times when people such as Ricky Francis could benefit from something that’s usually a hit to his wallet. Francis said he paid $400 to get a tooth extracted.
“Money doesn’t grow on trees,” Francis said. “It’s easy when you have the money, but it’s really hard when you don’t have the money to pay for something like that.”
