A Day of Free Dentistry

The 4th annual Dentistry from the Heart a day of free dentistry is this Saturday October 8th from 8 in the morning until 3 in the afternoon in Grass Valley. 8 dentists including Dr. Paul Evens along with a team of hygienists will be performing a variety of dental services and tells how the program came to Nevada County.

“I actually heard it from my brother in law who is also a dentist out of state. But he was telling me about this non-profit organization that started in Florida over 10 years ago. I thought it sounded like an incredible event and wanted to bring it to Nevada County. There’s nothing like that here. And so four years ago, I made a few phone calls to some dentists and amazingly, they all wanted to participate and we’ve been doing it ever since.”

If you are a resident of Nevada County, have limited income and are in need of dental work, you should plan to attend the event. Each patient will choose one of 3 services, a filling, an extraction or a dental cleaning. Patients are seen on a first come first service basis. The location is the Brunswick East Professional Buildings, 563 Brunswick road in Grass Valley. You are also asked to bring a least 1 non-perishable food item, which will be donated to the local food bank.
