The Dental Care Group and Aventura Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics team members hosted their 2nd annual “Dentistry From Our Hearts” community event on Sunday February 24th. FREE dental care was provided to almost 400 adults and kids at both their offices in Aventura and Pembroke Pines, FL. Services provided included cleanings, exams, fillings and extractions. Dental specialists were on hand to triage patients along with 30 dentists, assistants, hygienists and staff plus 20 volunteers to assist everyone (adults, children) who arrived on Sunday.
The response from people in need of routine dental care was tremendous. Some participants started lining up at midnight eager to take advantage of the FREE service. By noon time all of the available slots were completely booked through the end of day. Every team member worked nonstop past the official 4:00 pm closing time.
Miss Florida, Michelle Aguirre, the spokesperson for this year’s event visited both locations and Power 96 WPOW-FM provided lunchtime entertainment and games.
Dr. Rick Mars, Dr. Joel Glicksman, Dr. Joshua Coussa and the entire staff express a big THANK YOU to all “Dentistry From Our Hearts” sponsors – especially Henry Schein who donated dental supplies- for generously giving food, money and services. Also, a big THANK YOU to the volunteers who donated their time to help The Dental Care Group and Aventura Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics touch the lives of many in need right in their own community.
