The tenth 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 13. 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 a.m. and is first come, first served. The first 120 adults are guaranteed to be seen.
Last year, over $47,565 of dental care services were provided to 95 patients free of charge, in a single day. Since 2007, that’s over $440,000 in care for more than 1,200 grateful recipients in the greater Lincroft area.
“One day may seem insignificant…however, we know it makes a difference in the lives of the people who come to us for help,” said Dr. Mitchel Friedman (pictured). “Since bringing Dentistry From The Heart to New Jersey in 2007, we have helped other offices start their own events as well as volunteered to provide dental care with them. There is a large need and other generous dental teams have answered by serving their communities.”
Drs. Julia Cintron and Aparna Menon along with Dr. Friedman and their team of volunteers will do whatever they can on Dentistry From The Heart day to relieve dental pain and fix dental problems. Local dentists Drs. Allan Ruda, Beth DeAngelis, Randy Davis, Kayvon Haghighi, Jared Gelband 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.
