We know it can be tough on families today to get basic dental care. Some may have lost their insurance, and others simply can’t afford to pay out of their own pockets. That’s why we wanted to continue offering this program.
Monrovia, CA (PRWEB) August 02, 2012
It’s not every day that patients can receive free dental care, and yet, on August 3rd, 2012, that’s exactly what will happen for the first 100+ patients to walk through the doors of Foothill Dental Group.
Monrovia and San Gabriel Valley locals are invited to receive free dental care at Foothill Dental Group in Monrovia. Owner Dr. Emily Letran and staff will host this free event in partnership with non-profit Dentistry From The Heart, supporting local residents by providing the community with free dental services.
From 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM Foothill Dental Group’s dentists, assistants, and hygienists will donate their time and resources to provide the first 100 adult patients with one of the following high-quality dental services: tooth extraction, filling, or cleaning. The purpose for the event is to provide much needed health care and relief to people in the community.
Long-time San Gabriel Valley resident and program sponsor Dr. Emily Letran believes in giving back to the community and not only helping give local residents access to free dental care, but also helping them regain their confidence and ability to smile. “We know it can be tough on families today to get basic dental care,” says Dr. Letran. “Some may have lost their insurance, and others simply can’t afford to pay out of their own pockets. That’s why we wanted to continue offering this program. On Friday August 3rd the smiles are on us!”
This is the fourth “free dental day” being offered by Dr. Letran’s offices to support the needs of San Gabriel Valley residents who may not otherwise have access to these services under normal circumstances. Since 2011 she and her team of volunteers have provided $43,149.00 in free dental care to 224 friends and neighbors in Southern California! At the event on August 3rd Dr. Letran is hoping to “top her best” by providing 100 people in the surrounding community with free dental services.
Local residents that would like to get a treatment should arrive early on Friday, August 3rd at Foothill Dental Group, located at 837 W. Foothill Blvd. in Monrovia, CA 91732. Registration begins at 7:00 AM, and patients will be seen through 4:00PM that day. Treatments will be provided on a first come, first serve basis. Patients are also encouraged dress appropriately for the weather and bring chairs, water, snacks, etc., as the waiting area will be outside the facility.
