Rochester Cosmetic Dental Office to Offer Free Day of Dentistry

ROCHESTER, MN--(Marketwired - August 28, 2015) - Northwest Dental Group, a family dental office, will host a free day of dentistry for community members who do not have regular access to dental care.

Dentistry From The Heart is a national event that works to provide dentistry to uninsured or underinsured people across the country. The practice’s all-day event is scheduled for Sept. 18. Last year, Northwest Dental Group treated 80 patients and completed more than 150 procedures, giving away an estimated $35,000 in dental care.

“It’s our favorite day of the year because we get to treat patients who otherwise would have not received dental care,” said Dr. Steven Sperling, who operates Northwest Dental Group. “When patients go without dental care, the problems certainly don’t go away. In fact, their issues will only get more severe.” During Dentistry From The Heart, the professional team of Northwest Dental Group will offer free fillings, cleanings and extractions on a first-come, first-serve basis. The staff works with local media and businesses to offer a multitude of services for those in need.

Dr. Sperling said the staff begins treating people as early as 7 a.m. and sees patients all day.

“We are very excited to have the opportunity to give back to the community in such an extraordinary way,” Dr. Sperling said. “Dentistry From The Heart is an incredible program because it changes people’s lives and gets them back on track in order to have a healthier smile.”

Northwest Dental Group provides comprehensive services in general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, tooth extractions, Invisalign, sleep apnea treatment, sports dentistry, root canals and dental implants. The talented staff at Northwest Dental Group can replace missing teeth with dental implants or use implants to provide stability to dentures.

Northwest Dental Group is a unique Rochester dental practice as it offers several forms of sedation. The practice uses sedation techniques like oral conscious sedation and IV sedation for fearful patients or for patients who need extensive dental work.

Dr. Sperling holds an undergraduate degree from St. Olaf College in Northfield and earned his dental degree from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. He holds a Mastership from the Academy of General Dentistry and Fellowship with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. Dr. Sperling has completed thousands of hours in continuing education, which includes live training and in-office training. Dr. Sperling is also a governor-appointed member of the Minnesota Board of Dentistry and is the co-author of an Amazon best-selling book, “Change Agents.”

Northwest Dental Group serves as a location for the annual Dentistry From The Heart event, a program aimed at providing a free day of dentistry to local residents who do not have access to dental insurance or regular dental care. Staff members also volunteer with The Salvation Army Good Samaritan Clinic in Rochester and Mission of Mercy.

Northwest Dental Group locations are at 1615 14th St. NW and 2056 Superior Dr. NW. For more information about Invisalign clear braces, visit the practice’s website at or call 507-289-3921.
