Smileology Donates $36,092 in Free Dental Services to those in Need
3rd Annual Dentistry from the Heart event services 91 patients
Dr. Amber Wiebe and Dr. Olivier Broutin hosted their third annual Dentistry from the Heart (DFTH) event on Friday, April 14, 2017, at the Miramar Beach Smileology location, along with Dr. Bibek Nakarmi and Dr. Patricia Salter.
The team of professionals worked collaboratively to provide 161 services to 91 patients. Patients chose a complimentary filling, extraction, or cleaning. In addition to the time dedicated by hygienists, assistants and other dental professionals, a total of $36,092 worth of dental care was donated to the community in good faith.
A number of Smileology’s service providers (including 3M Products, Patterson Dental and UltraDent) donated dental supplies. Several local area businesses, including McAlister’s Deli, Publix at South Walton, Fat Clemenza’s, and Chicken Salad Chick, also made in-kind donations to the event.
This was Dr. Wiebe and Dr. Broutin’s third year hosting Dentistry from the Heart and its second year at Smileology’s location in Holiday Plaza in the heart of Miramar Beach. Dr. Wiebe and Dr. Broutin look forward to continuing this annual event to help those in need in the local community. The services provided through Dentistry from the Heart not only helped patients’ teeth and overall health, it gave them a renewed reason to smile.
“We are thankful for the opportunity to give back to our community,” says Dr. Amber Wiebe. “Often we find the majority of patients cannot afford dental care and for that reason let their problems go untreated. Through the combined efforts of our dentists and staff, we are able to really make a difference…and that is our ultimate goal.”
