MARIETTA, Ga. -- An East Cobb dentist will open his doors to the community for a day of free dental care this weekend.
Marietta Family Dental Care will offer the free services from 4 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 10.
Eighteen dentists and more than 70 hygienists and other dental professionals will be on hand to help Dr. Michael Mansouri see as many patients as possible. Attendees will be treated on a first-come, first-served basis, and can choose to have a cleaning, filling or extraction.
This is the second time Mansouri will host a free dental care day. Hundreds of people attended last year's event.
"In the past, lines began forming as early as 8 a.m. the day before," dental hygienist Mehrdad Mansouri said in a statement. "Due to the shortage of such volunteer events and the growing number of Americans who lack dental insurance, we're anticipating hundreds prepared to camp overnight for ordinarily costly, yet necessary dental treatment."
Marietta Family Dental Care is located at 4720 Lower Roswell Road.
