Dentistry From the Heart performs cleanings, fillings and extractions for free at scheduled events throughout the world. These are the only services provided due to the large number of people that attend the events. The organization recommends that patients contact their local county offices for the names and locations of other free clinics if they require additional dental treatment.
Patients interested in attending a Dentistry From the Heart event in the United States or Canada can view a schedule at the organization's website, DentistryFromTheHeart.org. The organization treats anyone 18 years and older who attends the events. To ensure treatment, patients should arrive early, as these events tend to draw large crowds. Patients are seen on a first-come-first-served basis, and the events often have a limit as to how many patients can be treated.
Dentistry From the Heart is a nonprofit organization based in New Port Richey, Florida. Thousands of volunteers donate time worldwide annually to the organization to help thousands of patients at hundreds of events. Dr. Vincent J. Monticciolo founded Dentistry From the Heart to provide dental care to those without the means to secure it themselves and offer a way for dentistry professionals to give back to their communities.
