613 US Hwy 75N, Denison, TX – Friday, September 21, 2012 –Dr. Stephen McAnaney is out to change lives by offering free smiles to anyone who needs dental work, as they hosts the annual event for Dentistry From The Heart.
This is Lake Texoma Dental Care’s 5th event to help people in need of dental work – treating patients in need of extractions and cleanings. This year’s event promises to be even better than before.
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. Stephen McAnaney.
The event will take place on Friday, September 21, 2012 at Lake Texoma Dental Care in Denison, TX. Starting at 8:00 a.m., Dr. Stephen McAnaney and volunteers will treat the first 200 patients starting at age 18, or as many as can be serviced by 5 p.m. For more information, visit www.texomadentist.com or www.dentistryfromtheheart.org.
