Aquila Dental Provides Free Dental Care to the Chandler Community at
Dentistry From The Heart Event was held on 10/24/2015
October's event saw Dr. Higgs giving back to the Chandler community by offering free smiles to anyone who needs to see a dentist but might not have the means to do so, as he hosts the latest event for Dentistry From The Heart (DFTH).
Today, over 100 million Americans lack dental insurance, and over 29 percent of adults have untreated cavities. Without events like DFTH, dental care may not be an option for some. To date, DFTH has helped over 5,000 patients and provided over $1 million in dental care and now they’re here to help the Chandler community.
Dentistry From The Heart is a national nonprofit organization with a simple mission making people smile. Founded in 2001 by a dentist in New Port Richey, Florida, DFTH is helping people with a health issue that is frequently overlooked.
At Dentistry From The Heart events, Dentists and their teams, sponsors, and groups of volunteers have helped hundreds of people in need of dental work treating patients over the age of 18 that are in need of fillings, extractions, and cleanings. Because of Aquila Family and Cosmetic Dentistry’s passion for giving back to the community, DFTH is an event that they are proud to be a part of.
I know there are people out there who need dental services, but have no means to afford dentistry; whether they’re out of a job, or just don’t have dental insurance. This Dentistry From The Heart event is my way of giving back to the community, and being there for the people who are in need of dental work.
