KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Kansas City-area dental clinic continued a 33-year tradition of providing free dental care to children.
Marx Family Dental hosted on Saturday its 33rd annual Have a Heart Day.
The annual event provides children who might not have access to dental care a chance for a check-up.
Dr. Robert Marx, senior dentist at Marx Family Dental, said the event also is about making sure the children have a positive experience.
"Sometimes kids get off to a rocky start in dentistry," Marx said. "Well, we've changed that, and we make it a party atmosphere and they really love that."
Marx said there were fewer children at this year's event in order to maintain social distancing.
