Smileology To Host Free Day of Dentistry with 4th Annual Dentistry from the Heart
MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla. (February 16, 2018) â€“ The husband and wife duo behind Smileology, Dr. Olivier Broutin and Dr. Amber Wiebe, are out to change lives by offering free smiles to anyone who needs dental work, as they host the latest event for Dentistry from the Heart on Friday, March 30, 2018, at their Miramar Beach, Florida, location.
Starting at 7:00 a.m. at 12273 US Highway 98 W Ste. 117, Miramar Beach, FL 32550, Dr. Broutin, Dr. Wiebe, and their volunteers will treat the first 50 patients, or however many they can service by 2:00 p.m. Guests 18 years and older can choose from a filling, extraction or cleaning.
During the 2017 Dentistry from the Heart event the team of professionals provided 91 patients with 161 services. Patients chose from a complimentary filling, extraction or cleaning. In addition to the time dedicated by hygienists, assistants and other dental professionals, a total of $36,092 worth of dental care was donated to the community in good faith.
Dentistry from the Heart (DFTH) is a national non-profit organization with a simple mission â€“ making people smile. Founded in 2001 by a dentist in New Port Richey, Florida, DFTH was created to aid those in need, including the growing population of under-insured Americans. Over 100 million Americans lack dental insurance, and over 29 percent of adults have untreated cavities. Without events like DFTH, dental care simply isnâ€™t an option for many of the uninsured. To date, DFTH has helped over 5,000 patients and provided over $1 million in dental care.
â€œThe Dentistry from the Heart event is our way of giving back to the community, and being there for the people who need dental work. There are so many people in our community who canâ€™t afford dental care, so we aim to help in any way we can,â€ said Dr. Wiebe.
