On Saturday, April 27, 8 a.m. to noon, Horizon Dental Care will host its 14th annual Dentistry from the Heart event at its Hawley office at 2537 Route 6 . 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 more than a million dollars in treatment completely free of charge to nearly 3,000 adults who could not otherwise afford dental care.

Patients must be at least 18 years of age to receive treatment. Patients will be seen on a first-come-first-served basis. Patients should plan to arrive as early as possible and dress appropriately as they may be waiting outdoors. Parking is available at Wallenpaupack Area High School.

At last year’s Dentistry from the Heart event, more than 75 volunteers posed for a photo outside the Horizon Dental Care Hawley office. Volunteer dentists, hygienists, assistants and dental office staff donated their time and expertise to help provide dental cleanings, fillings and extractions completely free of charge to those in who could not otherwise afford it.
