For the past 7 years, Smiles for Life has hosted a Dentistry from the Heart event once per year. Dentistry from the Heart is an amazing charity organization that makes it possible for adults around the United States to receive much needed free dental care in the form of cleanings, extractions, and fillings. This year, our event was held on Saturday, October 13th. We were able to help serve about 65 patients and donate almost $45,000 worth of care.
Before our day began at 7:00am, we already had a line of people ready to receive care.
Dr. McIntyre and many of our volunteers worked through the entire day, making things run smoothly and getting in as many people as possible.
Without the help of volunteers throughout the dental community in Virginia, this day simply wouldn’t be possible. We are endlessly grateful to those that gave up their time and incredible talent to provide for others so selflessly.
Dentistry from the Heart is always a humbling day. We have the chance to hear people’s stories and care for those that might not be able to be seen otherwise. Again, we are so thankful for all the volunteers that made it happen. We can’t wait until next year.
