Community Care Connection: Dentistry from the Heart

Community Care Connection: Dentistry from the Heart

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Dentistry from the Heart (DFTH) is a worldwide nonprofit organization dedicated to providing free dental care to adults and children in need. Every year, thousands of individual dentists, hygienists, and volunteers in hundreds of practices across the world donate their time and resources to host their own DFTH events. The first one in Hawaii will be hosted by Hurtado Dental on Sept. 7, 2014. They will host a free day of dentistry for anyone who needs it without insurance.

As a growing number of Americans lack dental insurance, the Hurtado Dental team feels this is a great way to address many health problems and to do good in the community. Hurtado Dental teams anticipate treating more than 60 patients and giving away $45,000 worth of free dental work.

You can help donate towards the cause by calling (808) 678-3000. The services provided will include fillings, extractions and cleanings.
