Center for Dental Excellence offers free dental care April 21

The Center for Dental Excellence will offer free dentistry during its 6th annual Dentistry from the Heart event on Friday, April 21.  
 
Patients are seen on a first-come first-served basis from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Center for Dental Excellence office at 19615 Governors Highway in Flossmoor.
 
Patients will be able to choose to have a filling, extraction or dental cleaning done by the center’s staff.  While no proof of need is required, the team hopes to serve the homeless, unemployed, working poor, those without dental insurance or the means to pay for dental care.
 
“Patients appreciate being treated with respect as much as they value the dental treatment they receive. Their gratitude is all the payment we need,” said Lori Tozer, marketing director, who tells stories of patients’ gratitude.
 
Dentistry From the Heart is an international non-profit organization with a mission of making people smile. Since 2001 it has aided a growing population of under-insured Americans offering at least $8 million in dental care.
