Huckabee Dental’s 4th Annual Free Day of Dentistry
Huckabee Dental Announces Its 4th Annual Dentistry From The Heart
Southlake, TX- January 10th, 2012- On Friday, February 10th, 2012, Huckabee Dental in Southlake, TX is hosted its annual charitable event, Dentistry From The Heart. Dr. Tim Huckabee and his colleagues provided free dental treatment all day on a first-come, first-served basis. Dentistry From The Heart aims to provide dental treatment for adults that are uninsured, under-insured, or unemployed. At last year’s event, Huckabee Dental provided over $65,000 in free dental care to patients from Tarrant County and greater North Texas.
Dr. Huckabee says, “Our intent this year is to be prepared to see as many people as we can without reservations, and that’s the heart of the event—opening our hearts and serving those in need.” Free treatments are not limited to those living in Southlake. Patients from surrounding areas were welcome. One patient from last year said, “My wife and I have no dental insurance. We both needed extractions, and Dentistry From The Heart is a real blessing.”
The media was invited to join the hundreds of volunteers and patients at Huckabee Dental on February 10, 2012 to spread free smiles across Dallas-Fort Worth through Dentistry From The Heart located at 505 West Southlake Boulevard, Southlake, Texas. Registration began at 6am, but with limited spots available and time constraints, patients were encouraged to come earlier. Patients must be 18 or older with valid photo ID. Services provided were limited to cleanings, extractions, and fillings. People with certain conditions, such as pregnancy, artificial joints, some heart conditions, or people on blood thinners will be unable to be treated.
