On Saturday, April 27th from 8:00am until 2:30pm, Horizon Dental Care will host the 14th Annual Dentistry from the Heart Event at their Hawley Office, located on Route 6 in Hawley, PA. The event provides free dentistry including fillings, cleanings, and extractions at no cost to patients in need.

During the past 13 years at these events, Dr. John Evanish III and his Horizon Dental Care team of doctors and dental professionals along with a dedicated group of local volunteers have provided over a million dollars in treatment completely free of charge to nearly 3000 adults who could not otherwise afford dental care.

Why Dentistry from the Heart Matters….

For many individuals throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania there are limitations to getting affordable dental care. Many “working poor” are under-insured or have no insurance at all. Due to shifting policies and changing demographics in the area, the percentage of residents with dental decay and tooth loss is high and the number of dentists who accept medical assistance is low. As a result of these factors, far too many patients who lack dental insurance suffer until they end up inemergency rooms for treatment to manage pain and infection. The condition of the oral cavity matters because it is interconnected with general health, social function, and emotional well-being. Horizon Dental Care’s annual “Dentistry from the Heart” Events seek to remove barriers to quality dental care by giving people the opportunity for a free teeth cleaning, and when required, fillings or extractions to help to restore better health and alleviate discomfort.
