Cary Family Dental will host its 6th annual Dentistry From The Heart (DFTH) event on Saturday, April 22. Over 300 members of the community are expected to turn out for the event that is held at the Cary Family Dental office at 1149 Kildaire Farm Road.
Individuals 18 years and older will be able to receive a free cleaning, filling or extraction. Doors will be open from 7 a.m.-5 p.m. and patients will be treated on a first-come, first-served basis. Many people will camp out in the parking lot overnight to reserve their spot in line. Those who are waiting can enjoy entertainment by local musician Chris Oversteet, and food and refreshments provided by Starbucks, City Barbecue and Ruckus Pizza.
Dentistry From The Heart is a worldwide nonprofit organization dedicated to providing free dental care to those in need. Every year, thousands of individual dentists, hygienists, volunteers and hundreds of practices across the world donate their time and resources to host their own DFTH events.
Cary Family Dental has a longstanding reputation of generosity in the community. On average the practice donates over $60,000 worth of free dentistry services to the DFTH event each year.
“Dentistry From The Heart is one of my favorite events we host. It’s a neat way to serve the community, and we really get to make a difference in people’s lives,” Dr. Allan Acton said.
DFTH is a day full of family, friends, volunteers and community businesses all working together to help people in need. The practice is asking for anyone who is interested in volunteering, sponsoring or attending the event to visit CaryDental.com/DFTH or call (919) 460-6884.
