Longmeadow Dental Office Hosts Free Day of Dentistry

LONGMEADOW, MA--(Marketwired - May 31, 2015) - Dr. Jim Dores, a top Longmeadow cosmetic dentist, provided free dental care to dozens of patients during the annual Dentistry From The Heart program.

Dentistry From The Heart is a national program that provides free dental care one day of the year. The program assists patients who are uninsured or those who are underinsured. Dr. Dores’ practice, Dores Dental, opens its doors every year to treat patients through general and restorative dental care. Dr. Dores offers free cleanings and examinations, fillings and extractions, if needed.

This year, the office provided free dental care treatments to nearly 50 patients on May 9, giving away more than $10,000 in services.

“This is a service that we look forward to the entire year,” the Longmeadow dentist said. “As a local business, we want to improve the overall health of the entire community and give people their smile back.”

The entire staff of Dores Dental participated in the event, and Dr. Dores worked with local vendors to provide food and activities for the patients. Local health professionals around the community also volunteered their time.

“The incredible thing about Dentistry From The Heart is that so many community organizations and businesses come together to serve a population that is so commonly underserved,” Dr. Dores said. “With just a few hours of our time, we get to make a positive and life-changing impact on local residents.”
