A Paris, Ky., dentist who has a love of horses is offering free dental care to uninsured patients if they agree to barter their skills or services to help Our Mims Retirement Haven.

Dr. Anna Newman is a Thoroughbred owner and mother of a teenager who volunteers at Our Mims. The arrangement began last week, when a shipment of hay arrived at the Haven.

Prospective volunteers and donors must first be screened by Our Mims founder Jeanne Mirabito, and, almost everyone has something the farm can use.

Mirabito said, “When Dr. Newman suggested this, I said, 'Anna, what do you get out of this?' And, she said to me that she believes in my cause, and that the ladies deserve it.”
