Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) August 21, 2014
Risas Dental and Braces (Risas), the Arizona-based healthcare company committed to making quality dentistry affordable to all, will offer free dental care in celebration of their annual Labor of Love event in Phoenix and Denver, including at its newest location at 7440 West Thomas Road Phoenix, AZ 85033 on Monday, September 1 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
This annual event gives attendees the opportunity to choose from one of four treatments including teeth cleaning, cavity filling, tooth extraction or a complete exam with X-rays. In addition to cleanings, fillings and exams, participants will receive oral hygiene instruction. Each patient is expected to receive up to $300 in dental care. For those who may need further care, Risas’ caring staff will provide follow-up communication and coordination of additional care regardless of each participant’s insurance status or ability to pay. Since Risas’ first event in 2011, each office has treated anywhere from 75 to 200 patients and donated more than $1 million in dental care by the all-volunteer staff.
Dr. Nicolas Porter created Risas Dental and Braces with a mission to change the practice of dentistry– one patient and one practice at a time. Since founding Risas Dental and Braces in Glendale, Arizona, Porter makes a difference for communities nationwide by providing proper oral care and flexible treatment options and payment accessible and affordable for those who speak not only English, but Spanish as well. “Risas has an imbedded culture of service to patients in need and it is rewarding to dedicate our resources for this one day of the year to helping our community,” said Porter. “After all, our community supports us every other day of the year!”
All Risas locations will open Monday, September 1 from 8 a.m. to noon for the annual Labor of Love event. To see a listing of all Risas locations, visit http://www.risasdental.com.
