Free Dental Day Being Held In Cobb County This Week
The third annual Dentistry from the Heart dental event will be held this Saturday at Marietta Family Dental Care in Cobb County.
Dr Michael Mansouri will be joined by dental professionals across Atlanta to provide free dental care during the day; the clinic will run from 4am until 4pm at the dental office on Lower Roswell Road.
The Free Dental Day is part of the Dentistry from the Heart campaign, which runs in countries all over the world and encourages dental professionals to volunteer their time and skills to help people in need.
Dr Michael Mansouri has organised the event since 2011 and Marietta Family Dental Care has donated more than $500,000 worth of dental care and helped around 500 patients who would probably have gone without the treatment they needed without the dental day.
Dr Mansouri said that dentists are aware that people are neglecting their health because they cannot afford the bills and most are willing to give up their time to help out.
Dr Mansouri will be joined by 17 other dentists and 120 other dental professionals for the dental day and a host of treatments, including cleaning treatments, extractions and fillings will be available.
Appointments are available on a first come first served basis on Saturday. In the past, people have started to line up from the morning before and by 3am on Saturday, Dr Mansouri is expecting a crowd of 200 people to have gathered outside the office.Join this Discussion
