Smiles With A Heart, a very special day of free dental care for the needy, will be held Friday, April 8. Smiles With A Heart is now in its sixth year and has donated nearly $250,000 in free dental care in the area. Clinics, community and faith-based groups, and others are encouraged to nominate those needing dental care at no charge. All dental work will be performed at the Fredericksburg Smile Center.
In 2010, Smiles With A Heart helped 173 patients with more than $70,000 in donated dental care. This community outreach is provided thanks to dental practices and other businesses in the area. It is coordinated and held at Fredericksburg Smile Center.
