Dentistry From The Heart: Free Dental Services — a success!
More than 100 patients were seen at the twelfth annual “Dentistry From The Heart” event at Westermeier Martin Dental Care in its East Aurora office. The event was held June 17 and for the “price” of a donated canned good (and that wasn’t even required) patients received free dental care. They started lining up an hour before the office opened with a few of the people in line saying this wasn’t the first time they’ve benefited from the Dentistry From The Heart event.
Maria Miecyjak, practice manager/COO said, “The office gave away close to $40,000 worth of dentistry. Four dentists, six hygienists, 26 team members and community members volunteered their time and talent to take care of our community. Next year it’ll be our lucky 13th annual event!”
Patients, who were seen on a first-come-first-served basis, could choose a dental cleaning or a visit with a dentist for a filling or other dental work.
A patient, Anne from Buffalo, said, “This is such an incredible thing that this office does for people who don’t have a regular dentist or who can’t afford dental services.”
While they waited to be seen, patients spent time in the waiting room, out on the porch and on the shaded lawn of the office. The dental team also brought in entertainment for the patients.
Cheryl, of East Aurora, said, “This was amazing. The dentists are amazing and I can’t believe they do this for the community.” She also said, “I’m a little afraid of going to a dentist, but when I come here I’m not even nervous.”
Even if you missed the Dentistry From The Heart event, Westermeier Martin Dental Care offers free dental check-ups for new patients at its East Aurora and Amherst, New York offices.
