Health: Dentistry with Love

Free Day of Dental Work

“Dentistry with Love” is what it’s all about to Dr. Steven Johnson. For more than 50 years, Johnson Family Dental has been keeping people’s teeth white and healthy on the Central Coast, and for the past 11 of those, it has hosted a day of free dental services to those unable to afford oral care. Folks will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis and can have the following treatments: fillings, tooth extractions, and basic cleanings. Dentistry with Love takes place Saturday, February 21, 8 a.m.-2 p.m., in Santa Barbara (3906 State St.; 687-6767), Solvang (678 Alamo Pintado Rd.; 688-9999), and Ventura (103 S. Mills Rd., #101; 585-3672). Call to make an appointment. For more information, see
