Klement Family Dental Care will host Dentistry From The Heart – providing free dental care on November 22, 2013, 8am-3pm
St. Petersburg, FL – October 14, 2013 – Klement Family Dental Care will host its first annual Dentistry From The Heart (DFTH) event on November 22, 8am-3pm, providing a free day of dental care to local residents.
Patients will be able to begin signing up for care at 7am in the parking lot outside the practice on 38th Avenue North. ‘Dentistry From The Heart patients travel from across Florida every year to these events and we are excited to offer this wonderful opportunity to the residents of St. Pete’ says Dr. Kristen Oldham, one of doctors at Klement Family Dental Care.
In 2001, Dentistry From The Heart started with New Port Richey dentist Dr. Vincent Monticciolo as a way to giving back to the community and provide aid to the growing number of Americans without dental insurance. Since its inception, Dentistry From The Heart has grown to include over 200 annual events nationwide and provided more than 45,000 people with free dental care services.
Patients attending this DFTH event can receive a cleaning, filling or extraction free of charge. Services are provided on a first-come, first-served basis and are for those patients who are 18 years of age or older.
“It all comes down to wanting to provide something greater to our community,” said Dr. Oldham “The services provided by Dentistry From The Heart helps more than just a patient’s teeth, it gives them a renewed reason to smile.”
The media is invited to join the volunteers, patients and doctors on Friday, November 22 to spread free smiles across St. Petersburg through Dentistry From The Heart located at 38th Avenue North, between 66th Street and Tyrone Boulevard.
