On February 5, Dentistry from the Heart, a non-profit organization that provides free dental care to the needy, will be hosting its ninth annual day of free dentistry for the first 500 adults at Monticciolo Family & Sedation Dentistry in New Port Richey, Florida.
Because thousands of local residents do not have dental insurance, Monticciolo expects patients from all over Florida to attend the clinic, Examiner.com reports. Last year, the event drew record-breaking crowds, including some individuals who camped out overnight to receive free dental care.
"It all comes down to wanting to provide something greater to my community," said Dr Vincent Monticciolo. "The services provided by Dentistry From The Heart helps more than just a patient's teeth, it gives them a renewed reason to smile."
Since 2001, Dentistry from the Heart events have provided more than $5 million worth of complementary dental care to underprivileged communities across the country.
Regular visits to the dentist can help prevent avoidable dental health problems, such as infection, tooth decay, and cardiovascular disease according to the American Dental Association.
