Lincroft Dental Practice Treats Nearly 90 Patients During 8th Annual Dentistry From the Heart Program

LINCROFT, NJ--(Marketwired - November 28, 2014) - Dr. Mitchel Friedman, a leading Lincroft cosmetic dentist, and a host of volunteers treated nearly 90 people and contributed more than $39,000 in free dental services during the 8th Annual Dentistry From The Heart program.

Dentistry From The Heart is a national nonprofit that uses a network of dentists to provide Americans without dental insurance a free dentist for the day. On Oct. 23, area Lincroft professional oral health care providers volunteered to provide free exams, dental procedures, blood pressure checks, advanced oral cancer screenings and digital X-rays.

Dr. Friedman brought Dentistry From The Heart to his Lincroft practice, Newman Springs Dental Care, eight years ago. Local volunteers have served more than 1,000 patients and given away almost $400,000 in dental care. This year, 42 volunteers treated 88 patients, performed 355 procedures and contributed $39,341 in free dentistry.

"The first people arrived in the torrential rain hours before the event even began, and the dedicated team of volunteers was able to treat everyone who showed up," said Dr. Friedman, who provides Lincroft teeth in a day. "It's important for us to set aside this day for patients who would have otherwise ignored serious dental issues. We're all very proud to provide this service to the community."
