El Paso Strong

EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – A local dentist is helping brighten the smile of Antonio Basco, the man who lost his wife in the Aug. 3 Walmart mass shooting.

Employees of Westside Dentistry had wanted to help Basco, so they made a Facebook post to try to get in contact.

More than 1,000 shares later, the office was able to reach Basco and is now working to get him a new smile.

“We’re going to try to give him the best of care, help him improve his oral health and get a real nice smile,” Dentist Stephen Kimball told KTSM.

Westside Dentistry plans to meet with Basco very soon.

In addition to helping Basco, Kimball says the office will also be hosting a free dental day for surviving victims.

Anyone interested can make an appointment by calling Westside Dentistry at (915) 581-1511.
