Littleton dentist to give free dental services Saturday

Rocky View Dental Care is out to change lives again this year by offering free smiles to anyone who needs dental work, as they hosts the latest event for Dentistry From The Heart. To date, Rocky View Dental Care has helped more than 360 people and provided over $83,000 in free dental services.

Hosting their fourth annual Dentistry From The Heart event, Dr. Terry L. Wostrel and his team of dentists including, Dr. Maria Johnson, Dr. Andrew Stubbs, Dr. Stephen Colm, sponsors and volunteers will help people in need of dental work - treating patients in need of fillings, extractions and cleanings. Patients must be 18 or older and should arrive early as registration for the event starts at 6 a.m. and it is a first come first serve basis. Patients are encouraged to bring chairs, blankets, water, snacks, etc. as they will be outside waiting to be seen.

Dentistry From The Heart (DFTH) is a registered national non-profit organization with a simple mission - making people smile. Founded in 2001 by a dentist in New Port Richey, Florida, DFTH was created to aid those in need, including the growing population of under-insured Americans. Over 100 million Americans lack dental insurance and over 29 percent of adults have untreated cavities. Now a national organization, hundreds of volunteer dentists have brought Dentistry From The Heart events to communities across America

Last years event at Rocky View Dental Care was a success with over 140 patients treated and $55,000 in free dental care provided to people who simply can't afford dental services. This year they plan to break that record by seeing 150 patients. Without events like DFTH, dental care simply isn't an option for many of the uninsured. To date, DFTH has helped over 60,000 patients and provided over $5 million in dental care. Dentistry From The Heart does more than repair a smile - it inspires confidence.

The event will take place Aug. 27 at the Rocky View Dental Care office located at 1 West Dry Creek Circle in Littleton. Starting at 7:30 a.m., the doctors at Rocky View Dental Care and their volunteers will treat the first 150 patients or as many they can service by 5 p.m.. Patients are asked not to park in Rocky View Dental Care's parking lot, parking will be available at building No. 2, 3, 5, and 15. For more information, visit www.rockyviewdentalcare.com or the organization's national website at www.dentistryfromtheheart.org

Dr. Vincent Monticciolo founded the organization as a means to give back to the community and address the growing number of people with-out dental insurance. In the past ten years, Dentistry From The Heart events have contributed over $5 million in free dentistry and helped over 60,000 patients across the country.
