1st Annual Day of Free Dentistry was a HUGE Success!

7 Dec

We Spread Free Smiles Across East Cobb!

We would like to thank  ALL of our volunteers for the OVERWHELMING response to provide services to the community on Saturday, November 19th 2011 during our 1st Annual Day of Free Dentistry Event.

Our event was a huge success thanks to your help. We were astounded with the number of patients needing to be seen. The line for treatment on a “first come-first served basis” started at 9 Am Friday November 18th. By 3:30Am Saturday, there were more than 400 prospective patients in line. Initially we expected to be able to treat 150 patients, but with a total volunteer turnout of 12 Doctors and other dental staff totaling 70, we were able to exceed our expectations and accommodate a total of 217 patients. The first treatment began at 4:00Am and by 4:00Pm, there were 155 Extractions performed, 91 Fillings were completed, and 42 patients received Cleanings. Together, we provided a total of $122,978.00 in FREE Dental Services and completed 288 total treatments not including x-rays and exams.

Without the support from our Sponsors, this event would have never been possible. We would like to take this opportunity to also thank: KeyWorth Bank, Willeford Group, United Concordia Dental, Pure Life, 3M ESPE, MICROCOPY, Premier Dental, Oral B, Henry Schein, Peacock Partnership, Discus Dental, Switzer Medical and all of our local vendors (Chick-Fil-A Johnson Ferry, McDonald’s Lower Roswell Road, Dunkin Donuts, Longhorn Lower Roswell Road, Papa John’s Lower Roswell Road, Suburban Rental Lower Roswell Road, Johnson Ferry Baptist Church and the residents who provided the patients waiting over night with multiple warm food donations … WHAT A GREAT EAST COBB COMMUNTY!) and the many other local businesses who contributed to the success of this event.
