Dr. Robert Leale and Dr. Brett Startin (NorthView Family Dental) and a team of dental professionals will provide free extractions and fillings to those adults who don't otherwise have access to quality dental care. Hygienists, dental assistants and other dental professionals will all be donating their time and resources in order to provide free dental care to as many people as possible. Last year's NorthView Family Dental - Dentistry From The Heart event did more than 150 procedures on 71 patients, receiving more than $40,000 in services.

Prospective patients are asked to arrive between 7am and 1pm that day and be prepaired. Wait times can be lengthy if they haven't RSVP'd on Facebook, but NorthView Family Dental will have snacks and drinks on hand to help pass the time quickly. Get more details at northviewfamilydental.com.
