Dentistry from the Heart in Tyler | Community Spirit
Smith Dental Center will host Dentistry From The Heart – Spreading Smiles across Tyler and the surrounding areas by providing East Texas residents with free dental care on February 9th, 2013
Every year, Dentistry From The Heart patients travel from across Texas to Smith Dental Center in Tyler, TX for a free day of dentistry. The 9th annual Dentistry From The Heart Event (DFTH) will be happening on February 9th, 2013. Once a year, the team at Smith Dental Center, volunteers, and sponsors come together to provide over 200 patients with a free extraction, filling or cleaning. The need is great, and the lines are long, so registration for DTH begins at 5:30 AM on the 9th. So far, Smith Dental Center and DFTH have provided more than $850,000 in free dental care to more 2,000 East Texas residents.
“This is a truly amazing event. People camp out as early as the night before in order to be seen. I am glad to be a day-maker in a stranger’s life, especially after seeing their smiles when they leave,” explains Dr. Roy Smith. “Every year this event gets bigger and bigger,” adds Dr. Joe Smith. “I am proud to be in the company of such hard-working staff and volunteers.”
The media is invited to join the hundreds of volunteers, patients and Smith Dental Center staff on February 9th, 2013 to spread free smiles across Tyler and surrounding cities through Dentistry From The Heart located at Smith Dental Center, 5400 New Copeland Road, Tyler, TX 75703.
