Dentistry From the Heart is a community outreach event to help those in need. Every year, our dentists and staff volunteer their time to offer free extractions for those who could not afford this treatment otherwise.
At the most recent outreach event, we saw 60 patients for a total of 75 extractions. Of those extractions, 66 were simple extractions and 9 of them required surgery. It was humbling to help so many people with this one dental need. At the end of the day, Dentistry From the Heart gave away over $8,000 of treatment.
Since 2010, we have seen over 1,040 patients from our local communities and have simply and surgically extracted over 1,500 teeth, providing relief to those that were suffering. In those 6 short years, we have given away over $214,000 of treatment but to be honest, the “thank-yous” that we received were priceless. We will continue to serve our community through this program in the coming years.
