Press release from Newman Springs Dental Care

The eighth annual edition of Dentistry From The Heart, Newman Springs Dental Care’s gift of a free day of dentistry, will be held on Thursday, October 23rd. During the day-long event, dental volunteers will provide examinations, digital x-rays, blood pressure and Velscope (advanced oral cancer) screenings. A choice of an extraction, filling or cleaning will be provided to those 18 years and older who arrive at the Lincroft practice.

Registration begins at 7:00 AM and is first come, first served. The first 140 adults are guaranteed to be seen.

Last year, over $48,237 of dental care services were provided to 108 patients free of charge, in a single day. Since 2007, that’s over $350,000 in care for more than 1000 grateful recipients in the Lincroft area.

“One day is only a drop in the bucket…however, we know it makes a difference in the lives of the people who come to us for help,” said Dr. Mitchel Friedman. “Since bringing Dentistry From The Heart to New Jersey in 2007, several other dental office have started their own events. There is a large need, and other generous dental teams have answered by serving their communities.”

Dr. Friedman, along with Dr. Julia Cintron and their team of volunteers will do whatever they can on Dentistry From The Heart day to relieve dental pain and fix dental problems. Drs. Allan Ruda, Beth DeAngelis, Kayvon Haghighi, Randy Davis, Gary Brousell and Jeffrey Zatzkin will also be donating their skills and time to help. Patients who need ongoing care, or who have problems that cannot be fixed in one day are referred to community clinics, where they can receive ongoing treatment at low or no cost.

The corporate sponsor is Henry Schein Dental, made possible by the generosity and hands on volunteering of Noah Schayowitz.

Newman Springs Dental Care is located at 539 Newman Springs Road in Lincroft. For more information about Dentistry From The Heart (including additional locations for Dentristy From The Heat events), visit the website or call (732)741-6444.
