"....This Dentistry From The Heart event is my way of giving back to the community."
Suwanee, GA (PRWEB) July 17, 2015
Dr. Mitul R. Patel, DDS, is out to change lives by offering free smiles to anyone who needs dental work, as he hosts the latest event for Dentistry From The Heart.
In the past nine years, Dr. Patel and his team of dentists, sponsors and volunteers have helped over hundreds of people in need of dental work – treating patients in need of fillings, extractions and cleanings. This year’s event promises to be the largest yet.
Dentistry From The Heart (DFTH) is a national non-profit organization with a simple mission – making people smile. Founded in 2001 by a dentist in New Port Richey, Florida, DFTH was created to aid those in need, including the growing population of under-insured Americans. Over 100 million Americans lack dental insurance, and over 29 percent of adults have untreated cavities. Without events like DFTH, dental care simply isn’t an option for many of the uninsured. To date, DFTH has helped over 5,000 patients and provided over $1 million in dental care.
“Now more than ever, I know there’s people out there that need my services, but have no means to afford them – whether they’re out of a job, or just don’t have dental insurance. This Dentistry From The Heart event is my way of giving back to the community, and being there for the people who are in need of dental work,” said Dr. Patel.
The media is invited to join the several volunteers, patients and Dr. Patel on Friday, August 14, to spread complimentary smiles across the North Georgia area.
The event will take place on Friday, August 14th, 2015 at Family & Cosmetic Dental Care in Suwanee, GA. Starting at 8am, Dr. Patel and his volunteers will treat the first 50 patients, or however many they can service by 4 pm.

Dentistry From The Heart is a registered non-profit organization that offers free dental work for people who need it. Dr. Vincent Monticciolo founded the organization as a means to give back to the community and address the growing number of people without dental insurance. In the past seven years, Dentistry From The Heart events have contributed over $1 million in free dentistry and helped over 5,000 patients across the country.
