HEWITT -- If you haven't been to the dentist in a while, a local dentist office may have the incentive to get you to open wide.

On February 25, Central Texas Dental Care in Hewitt will offer dental services for free.

The treatments are limited to cleanings, fillings and extractions and are offered to those only 18 and older.

It's first-come-first-serve but they hope to get to as many patients as possible.

"We see a lot of people everyday that can't really afford the treatment they need and you'd love to give it to them but it is expensive to do the treatments so you feel that need all year long so it's nice to just one day say 'whatever' and do what we can," said Dr. Michael Cooney.

Cooney said it's important to come early.

This is the fourth year the office is hosting a one-day clinic and each year they've maxed out serving roughly 150 patients.
