Florence Dentists to Offer Free Work for Police Officers on 9/11 Anniversary

Shearer Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Florence will provide free dental exams for active police officers in Northern Kentucky as part of its Smiles for Cops 9/11 commemoration.

“In honor of 9/11 we thought we’d reach out to the community and give back to those who risk their lives daily for our safety,” said Shelley Shearer, D.M.D., founder of the dental firm. “Two of our staff members are married to police officers so we constantly hear about the tough situations they face and see this as our special way we can honor their sacrifices.”

Shearer will offer the free Smiles for Cops service on September 11 along with Lupe Rojas, D.D.S and Pam Walden, D.M.D. When they combine their various areas of expertise they are able to accommodate just about every aspect of dentistry, many that some dental offices no longer offer such as pediatrics, cosmetics, root canals, extractions, IV sedation, sleep appliances and implants. Combined with the practice’s 21 other female staff members, it is one of the largest all-female dental offices in the region.

“Since my husband is an active-duty police officer in Northern Kentucky, I am proud to be part of an organization that cares so much it is willing to spend an entire day devoted to free exams,” said hygienist Carla Hardcorn.

Eligible officers should currently work at a Northern Kentucky police department.

To make an appointment for the September 11 Smiles for Cops Day phone Shearer Family and Cosmetic Dentistry at 859.647.7068. The practice is located at 1335 Hansel Drive in Florence.

Appointments will be taken until the schedule fills.
