Drs. Fred and Rebecca Bye believe no one should be ashamed to smile. But for many people, a simple grin doesn't come easily. There is the embarrassment of discoloration and the pain caused by decay. There are loose teeth and infections. And there is the worry of how to pay the bills. For those with no dental insurance and limited income, good oral hygiene often becomes a luxury. As periodontists, the Byes have seen firsthand the extremes of dental neglect. They have donated their time and services to thousands of people at the annual Hagerstown Convoy of Hope and have offered assistance at a dental clinic in a remote section of Alaska.

Dental professionals and other volunteers helped put smiles on people's faces Saturday at Dentistry From the Heart, performing dental procedures for free for more than 100 people. “I got absolutely exceptional service,” said a beaming Karen Young of Shepherdstown, W.Va. “Everyone was cordial and very professional and polite.” “Dr. (Ray) Becker was amazing,” said Young, who received her free dental care at Hagerstown Smiles Dental Care on Mount Aetna Road. “We're right around 110 patients today, so it's been a good day,” said Dr. Bruce Burley, one of eight dentists who offered their services.

Harold Dean Smith Jr. had one tooth broken off and another cracked in an October car crash, but he had no dental insurance and more pressing medical needs at the time. On Saturday, he emerged from one of the exam rooms at The Bye Center on Pennsylvania Avenue, looking fairly chipper for someone who just had two teeth extracted. “One of them had to be removed surgically because it was a pain to get out,” Smith said through a wad of cotton. Smith and about 130 other people went to The Bye Center Saturday for Dentistry from the Heart, a day of free dental care for adults in need of cleanings, fillings or extractions.
