Beginning at 8 a.m. Friday and continuing until noon, Yahav will provide free emergency, preventive and even cosmetic procedures to anyone who shows up on a first-come, first-served basis.

Yahav said he has offered free services on other occasions, and with a tougher economy now, he finds greater demand.

“We’ve been noticing an increase in the number of people; some people, watching when we volunteer and returning back,” Yahav said. “Of course, our door is always open for them.”

Dr. Yahav’s office is on the 9th floor of the Water Tower Place, 835 N. Michigan Ave.

    It is something, but 4 hours is not going to allow him to fix that many patient’s teeth. Maybe 4-8 people with simple cavities I would think. The free publicity/advertising was worth his investment.

    Maybe if dentists did not charge so much money, people could afford dental procedures. It is horrible that a rich country like the United States has people walking around in pain because they cannot afford to go to the dentist. The United States is a selfish capitalist country.
