Dentistry From the Heart 2017
Advanced Smile Care to Provide FREE Dental Care with
Dentistry from the Heart 8th Annual Event
April 8, 2017
3829 Lockhill Selma Road, San Antonio, Texas 78230
San Antonio, TX – Come one, come all — Free smiles are rolling into the Alamo City! From teeth cleanings, to fillings, to simple extractions, the doctors of Advanced Smile Care (ASC) are rolling up their sleeves to host Dentistry from the Heart (DFTH) and serve the greater San Antonio community with a full day of FREE dental care! The doctors start working on patients as soon as the sun comes up – at 7 a.m. sharp – but, those looking to take part in the main event start lining up around the block as early as 4 a.m., patiently waiting for their turn in the chair. The doctors of ASC work tirelessly to serve as many people as possible, and luckily, they’re not alone! The ASC team is assisted by several hygienists, dental assistants, and other private practice dentists all looking to give back to the place they call home.
Last year, ASC and DFTH served roughly 174 adults with basic teeth cleanings, cavity fillings, and simple tooth extractions. If patients need care beyond this event, the doctors of ASC provide them with names of free clinics around town that can further serve their dental needs. DFTH really does more than provide free dental services, it gives the people of San Antonio a new reason to smile about living in a city where professionals are eager to give back and truly make a difference. The event – for adults 18 years of age or older – will take place on Saturday, April 8th from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Advanced Smile Care office located at 3829 Lockhill Selma Road, San Antonio, Texas 78230. Those interested in participating in the 8th annual event are invited to start lining up early as the event is on a first come, first serve basis. Advanced Smile Care and Dentistry from the Heart hope to see you there!

Rebuilding America’s Warriors (R.A.W.)
The statistics are grim: More than 40,000 brave men and women have returned wounded from Iraq and Afghanistan. They must now face the daunting challenge of recovery. Rebuilding America’s Warriors (R.A.W.) is a non-profit foundation dedicated to providing free reconstructive surgery to recently wounded and disfigured active service and veteran status warriors. Disfiguring scars can remain as a result of shrapnel, burn and artillery wounds. Shrapnel itself is often left in the wound site.
Disfiguring wounds can interfere with the veteran’s ability to seek social encounters and reenter his or her pre-war life. It is this Foundation’s objective to aid the veteran, or active military soldier, in more readily advancing in his profession and in the social arena. Looking one’s best also increases self esteem and will help give our soldiers the confidence to seek their ultimate dreams.
R.A.W. has formed a network of 357 surgeons in 47 states, soliciting their services across the country to provide reconstructive surgeries on a national basis to our wounded and disfigured warriors.
