What is Dentistry from the Heart?
Dentistry from the Heart is a nonprofit organization that started in 2001. One day per year, participating dentists donate their time and talents to those in need in the community.
It has become a worldwide event! Dr. Vincent J. Monticciolo is the man behind the mission. To this day, his practice donates a day in February to this great cause!
Dentistry from the Heart at Bradford Family Dentistry
We are happy to be a part of this annual charity event. On Friday, May 30th, we will be hosting our 4th annual Dentistry from the Heart day!
Last year, we helped more than 100 people, which is just about double what we did in 2012. We donated $28,800 in dental care to those patients! It was a phenomenal day.
Over the past 3 years, we have helped more than 230 people. In total, we have donated more than $60,000 in free dental services through Dentistry from the Heart!
Your dental health affects the health of the rest of your body. We know that not everyone can afford to take care of their teeth. That’s why we host this event – to keep our community members as healthy as possible!
I went to school to help people and so did my staff. We know there is a need in Bradford for people who cannot access dental care and those are the people that we really want to help.
Last year, we were happy to see some familiar faces from previous years events. It was also exciting to see many new faces! It’s a great feeling to be able to help any and all of those who need it.
At the end of the day, we are tired but so happy to have helped so many people!
I want to thank my staff who always steps up to the plate to help these people in need. I also want to thank the amazing volunteers who showed up to participate. Some of those volunteers are also our patients.
Dentistry from the Heart gives me the opportunity to help those of you who lack the resources to be able to visit the dentist as often as you should. I became a dentist so that I can improve your health and happiness. This event is a great way for our practice to give back to the community that we care about.
We get to help those in need by doing what we love to do – providing great dental care.
