NORWICH – Next weekend, area dental professionals will offer up their services to community members who may have found themselves fallen on hard times as the 19th annual “Doctors With a Heart Day” will be held Saturday, Sept. 13 at a number of local dental offices.
For nearly two decades the event has extended a much-needed hand to assist those less than fortunate with exams, x-rays, cleanings and essential procedures such as fillings and sealants that may be necessary to ensure continued overall dental health.
With roots dating back nearly 30 years, Dr. Duane Schmidt, of Cedar Rapids, Ia., founded Doctors with a Heart Day, Inc., to help people in need receive quality dental care in 1987
Today, Doctors with a Heart has become the largest doctor charity in the world. It has been estimated that over 15,000 doctors and their staff in various health care disciplines participate in this day of giving.
