RED DEER, AB, July 13 /CNW/ - Dr. Michael Dolynchuk is out to change lives by offering free smiles to anyone who needs dental work, as he hosts the latest event for Dentistry From The Heart (DFTH) on July 24, 2010.
The media is invited to join, Dr. Dolynchuk and his team of dentists and volunteers to help 200 people in need of dental work - treating patients in need of fillings, extractions and cleanings. Over the past 18 years, Appleway Dental has helped many patients, but this event will be their first multi-location charitable event.
Dentistry From The Heart is a national non-profit organization with a simple mission - making people smile. Founded in 2001 by a Dr. Vincent Monticciolo 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 alone lack dental insurance, and over 29 percent of adults have untreated cavities. Without events like DFTH, dental care simply isn't an option for many of the uninsured. To date, DFTH has helped more than 25,000 patients and provided over $5.5 million in dental care.
"Now more than ever, I know there's people out there that need my services, but have no means to afford them - whether they're out of a job, or just don't have dental insurance. Dentistry From The Heart is my way of giving back to the community, and helping people who are in need of dental work," said Dr. Dolynchuk.
The event will take place on July 24 at Appleway - Village Mall and Appleway - Inglewood Station in Red Deer. Starting at 8:30 AM, Dr. Dolynchuk and his volunteers will treat the first 200 patients, or however many they can service by 5:00 PM. To register, call the Appleway Hotline at 1-800-973-7085 NOW.
