FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Smileology’s 5thannual Dentistry From The Heart was a success!
Friday, April 19th, 2019 – Miramar Beach, FL
For the 5th year in a row, Dr. Broutin, Dr. Wiebe, Dr. Nakarmi and Dr. Salter along with the staff at Smileology partnered with the nonprofit Dentistry From The Heart to provide community members throughout Walton and Okaloosa counties with free dental care on Good Friday. The staff from all three Smileology locations donated their time and services to help serve our community.
The Smileology staff, partnered with Dr. Chen and Dr. Perez, provided free cleanings, extractions and fillings. Each patient received an X-ray along with a basic oral health exam. Overall 26 volunteers came together to provide the community with over $38,800 in free dental work.
To date, Smileology has been able to provide over $165, 000 in free dental care on Good Friday’s over the last five years since partnering with Dentistry From The Heart. Dr. Broutin and his staff at Smileology are already planning their free dental event for Next Good Friday, April 10th, 2020.
This event is put on every Good Friday to help promote good dental hygiene and overall health for our community. We are very thankful for our wonderful dentists, hygienists, assistants and Smileology team that volunteered at this event. Our local community business members came together to really make this event one of the best in our history of hosting this event.
Many local businesses came together to provide support, dental supplies, drinks and food for the volunteers and patients. Those businesses include Dr. Chen, D.D.S., BVVA Compass Bank, Whole Foods, Small Cakes, The Chicken Salad Chick, Starbucks, Lulus in Destin and The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. Safco Dental, Patterson Dental, Dentsply, DenMat, Bisco and Henry Schein donated dental supplies and equipment to help serve our community. Without the support and generosity of our community partners, events like this one would not be possible.
