MARYVILLE (WATE) - A local dentist is using his skills to help meet the needs of people in his community.

Dr. Randall Ford, of Adult and Family Dentistry in Maryville, is launching a new program that provides a way for families to get the dental care they need but cannot afford.

Dr. Ford has been a dentist for 25 years. He says he's never seen as many people having to go without dental care as he does now.

Patients tell him it simply costs too much.

Dr. Ford is trying to change that by launching a discount dental club for people in East Tennessee.

Members who pay a small yearly sign-up fee can then get all dental care at his office for half price.

"It is getting more and more expensive, so I wanted to find a way to give back to folks," said Dr. Ford. "This is a way of giving back and doing mission work here in town."

Furthering his efforts to provide crucial dental care, Dr. Ford sees patients on Sunday afternoon in a small satellite office, set up at the Green Acres Flea Market in Alcoa.

All procedures performed there are also at half-price.

"Nothing should hurt. If it bothers you at all, you let me know please," said Dr. Ford, talking to one of his patents.

He says the need for discounted dental services in this area is enormous.

"We get people saying, wow I've been praying that I would find you and this is such a great idea. We have patients calling almost every day. There's a large need for it," said Ford.

He hopes the new discount program can help get people in this community smiling again.
