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 92 patients for a total of 157 extractions. Of those extractions, 121 were simple extractions and 36 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 $18,000 of treatment.
Since 2010, we have seen over 1,100 patients from our local communities and have simply and surgically extracted over 1,700 teeth, providing relief to those that were suffering. In those 6 short years, we have given away over $233,000 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.
