Dentistry from the Heart (DFTH) is a national non-profit organization dedicated to providing free dental care to those who need it. Every year, individual dentists and practices across the country donate their time and resources to host their own DFTH events.
On September 16, 2017 we held our 5th Annual Dentistry from the Heart event. To date we have been able to give back to our communities over 140,000.00 in free dental care. Save the date for our 6th Annual DFTH event being held on Saturday, October 13, 2018! For more information on DFTH visit their website at www.dentistryfromtheheart.org.

Alissa, one of the hygienists from our Quakertown Office, visits with the Pre-K class at Richland Elementary School for February's National Children's Dental Health Month. In addition to teaching the proper way to floss and brush, Alissa had the opportunity to read to the class, The Tooth Book by Dr. Seuss!
This past March through June our offices teamed with the non profit, Smiles for Life Foundation and for a specified donation provided our patients a professional teeth whitening service. Opalescence donated the products and the office donated the time. Of the donations collected, half were given to the Smiles for Life Foundation and their children's chariities, and half were given to a charity of our choice.
Our chosen children's charities this year were the Quakertown Borough and Richland Township Police Departments "Shop with a Cop" Program and the Open Link in Pennsburg. We were able to give each charity a check for $3,864.00.
Shop with a Cop is a charitable event pairing a local police officer with a child from the Quakertown Community School District who faces life challenges, such as homelessness, economic shortcomings, military deployment, and other hardships. Children are assisted by police officers and have the opportunity to shop for gifts for their family and themselves.
The Open Link is a local non-profit organization that provides a variety of services and programs to help the Upper Perkiomen Valley community. Some of the donation provided will go to their Adopt-A-Family and the Christmas Room holiday programs.
