Dr. Tim Gardner of Conroe Comprehensive Dental Center (CCDC) and Montgomery Comprehensive Dental Center (MCDC), armed with staff and volunteers is out to change lives by offering free dentistry to the underprivileged of Montgomery County, as they host the latest event in conjunction with Dentistry from the Heart (DFTH).
The 11th Annual event will treat those, residing in Montgomery County, who truly need, but cannot afford dentistry. The procedures done free of charge include extractions, simple fillings and cleanings.
In 2018 CCDC donated more than $39,000 worth of free dentistry to about 70 underprivileged residents of Montgomery County. They hope to see an increase in numbers this year. To date, their event has donated more than $380,000 worth of free dental care to members of the community.
“Now more than ever I know there are people out there who need my services but have no means to afford them; whether they are out of a job or just having a hard time,” Gardner said. “This Dentistry from the Heart event is my way of giving back to the community and being there for the people who are in need of dental work.”
The event will take place Saturday, April 27, 2019, at the office of CCDC at 2210 North Frazier, Suite 120 in Conroe. Registration will begin at 7:30 a.m. Patients will be seen on a first come, first serve basis. Patients are asked to bring ID or other paperwork proving their residence in Montgomery County. Staff and volunteers will treat as many patients as possible by 5 p.m.
