Spreading Free Smiles Across Mequon and the Greater Milwaukee Area
Friedman Dental Care hosted a free dental care event through Dentistry from the Heart (DFTH) on Saturday, April 26, 2014, supporting Ozaukee, Milwaukee County and any other residents who are unable to afford dentistry visits on their own.
The team of dental professionals at Friedman Dental Care included Dr. Friedman, Dr. Dale Rottman, and Oral Surgeon, Dr. Alan Kimmel along with our staff Tammy, Karen and Barb. Also participataing were a number of volunteers who were a tremendous help in registration, sterilization, etc. We thank everyone who donated their time on a Saturday for this wonderful event.
We saw many patients in need of dental treatment and over $5000 in dental procedures were performed that day at no cost to these patients. When we saw their smiling faces and grateful attitudes when each treatment was completed, it made it all worthwhile. The services provided by Dentistry from the Heart not only helps a patients' teeth and overall health, it gives them a renewed reason to smile.
In 2001, Dentistry from the Heart started with dentist Dr. Vincent Monticciolo who wanted to give back to the community by providing aid to the growing number of Americans without dental insurance. Dentistry from the Heart is a registered non-profit organization that services free dental work for people in need. Since its inception, Dentistry from the Heart has grown to include over 200 annual events nationwide and provided more than 60,000 people with an estimated $6 million in free dental care.
