Dr. Lopez and the Professional Smiles staff hosted it’s third Dentistry from the Heart event on November 21, 2014. It was a complete success! People started lining up early in the morning. We greeted them with coffee and refreshments while they waited for their turn to be seen. While waiting they enjoyed watching movies on a big screen. Patients from Davenport, Haines City, Winter Haven and surrounding areas were seen. Dr. Lopez and volunteers saw close to 100 patients and made their smiles healthier.

We want to thank the  amazing staff of Professional Smiles for volunteering their time for this great cause, that is so important to Dr. Lopez and his family. Also, a big thank you to the staff of the following offices that were with us during the event.

  • Your Oviedo Dentist
  • Advanced Endodontics

Also, a special thank you to our great patient Jerry Martinez. He showed up early ready to help and stayed for most of the day calling patients in for treatment. Your help was appreciated very much!

  • Chick-fil-A
  • Publix Super Markets Inc.

9/23/2014 – Announcing our Third Annual Dentistry from the Heart Event! November 21, 2014

 
As a member of the Professional Smiles staff, I’m very excited to announce that we have a date for our Third Dentistry from the Heart Event in Davenport! Our event will take place on November 21, 2014. We are very happy that we have been able to continue hosting this important event in our community. We look forward to helping those members of our community in dire need of basic dental care.

During this event, Dentists and clinical staff volunteer to provide patients 18 or older with one of these services: a free extraction, filling or cleaning. It’s on a first come, first served basis. If patients have a pre-existing condition or need to take premedication they need to let us know at the time of registration. Due to a large number of patients expected, we will not be able to do any cosmetic dentistry, crowns, bridges, or cases beyond the objective of the day.

Registration will start around 7 am with doors opening around 8 am. If you are among those who can’t afford basic dentistry and are in need of any of these services, I suggest getting here very early in order to get a ticket to be seen. We will only see those patients 18 years and older, who are present at the time we call out their number.

Thank you to the following companies for being part of this year’s sponsors:

*Chick -Fil -A
*Publix Super Markets Inc.
*BJ’s Wholesale Club
*Perkins Restaurants

We are currently planning the event and looking for sponsors. If you have a business and would like to become a sponsor, send an email to www.professionalsmilesmedia@gmail.com with the subject “Sponsor”. Will update as we have more information.  Continue reading below for information on previous events done at our office.

Thank you

Second Annual Dentistry From the Heart Event – 11/15/13

 
Dr. Lopez hosted Professional Smiles’ Second Annual Dentistry From The Heart (DFTH) event on November 15, 2013 – providing a free day of dental care to more than 100 residents of the area. The line began as early as 5 am, with people prepared to camp out in order to receive free services. Our office Professional Smiles, PLLC is located in 2300 Deer Creek Commerce Ln, Suite 500, Davenport, FL.

“We wanted to provide something greater to our community, and give back in a time where a lot of people are struggling”, said Dr. Lopez. “The services provided by Dentistry From The Heart helps more than just a patient’s teeth, it gives them a renewed reason to smile.”

On this day, Dentists and clinical staff from our office, as well as other offices, volunteered to provide patients 18 or older with one of these services: a free extraction, filling or cleaning. It’s on a first come, first served basis. Due to a large number of patients attending each event,  we are not able to do any cosmetic dentistry, crowns, bridges, or cases beyond the objective of the day.

We had a great outcome and saw more than 100 patients who needed dental care. Our staff was very happy they could help. We met amazing people and are really excited about the turnout of volunteers as well as sponsors.

On Friday, November 16, 2012, we had our First Annual Dentistry from the Heart event at our office, Professional Smiles, PLLC. Our event was a success! We saw more than 70 patients! We had a great turnout of volunteers throughout the day. All our volunteers were very excited to be part of such a great cause and the patients we met were truly amazing people. We couldn’t have done it without the help and support of our sponsors, volunteers and members of the media who helped spread the word about our event.

Thank you for an amazing day!

Dentistry From The Heart Event in Davenport, FL – 11/15/2012

 
On November 16, 2012, our staff and I will be hosting our First Annual Dentistry From The Heart event, which is a free day of dentistry for anyone who cannot otherwise afford it. As a growing number of Americans lack dental insurance, we felt this was a great way to address this problem and give back to our community.

Dentistry From The Heart is a registered non-profit organization that provides free dental work to people most in need. In the past nine years, Dentistry From The Heart events have contributed more than $6 million in free dentistry and helped more than 30,000 patients across the country. This will be our first year hosting the event and expect to grow the event even more next year.

We are anticipating 6 dentists along with a number of hygienists and staff to volunteer. Our goal is to help at least 100 people. Patients will have the choice of selecting 1 of these services (extraction, filling or cleaning).

We will try to accommodate 100 patients. It will be “first come-first serve”. We are expecting to start at 8 am. Registration will start at 7 am.

If you are among those who can’t afford dentistry and are in need of any of these services, I suggest getting there very early in order to get a ticket to be seen. We will only see those patients 18 years and older, who are present at the time we call out their number. If you have a pre-existing condition, let us know at the time of registration.

Due to a large number of patients expected, we will not be able to do any cosmetic dentistry, crowns, bridges, or cases beyond the objective of the day.

Our office address is:

2300 Deer Creek Commerce Ln, Suite 500, Davenport, FL 33837

We wish to thank these sponsors for donating supplies, making this day possible:

  • Benco Dental
  • Walmart
  • CVS Pharmacy
  • Henry Schein®
  • Bob Evans
  • Dunkin Donuts
  • Patterson Dental
  • Denny’s
