Dentistry from the Heart

December 11th 2010 Grand Avenue Dental Care is Hosting a Free Day of Dentistry with Dentistry from the Heart

Dr. Peter Wilk 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.

Dr. Wilk and his team of dentists and volunteers hope to help 80 people in need of dental work- treating patients in need of fillings, extractions, and cleanings.

Dentistry From The Heart is a national non-profit organization with a simple mission - making people smile.  Founded in 2001 by Dr. Vincent Monticciolo 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 more than 25,000 patients and provided over $5.5 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.  Dentistry From The Heart is my way of giving back to the community, and helping people who are in need of dental work," said Dr. Peter Wilk.

The event will take place on Saturday December 11, 2010 at Grand Avenue Dental Care in Hartford.  Starting at 8:00 am  Dr. Wilk and his volunteers will treat the first 80 patients, or however many they can service by 4:00.  For more information, call 262-208-6240 or the organization's national website at
