Westendorf General Dentistry Is Hosting a Free Day of Dentistry with Dentistry From The Heart

Dr. Michael T. Westendorf is out to change lives by offering free smiles to anyone age 18 and over who is in need of dental work, as he hosts the latest event for Dentistry From The Heart.

Dr. Westendorf and his team of dentists, sponsors and volunteers look forward to helping people in need of dental work – treating patients in need of fillings, extractions and cleanings. This year’s event promises to have a tremendous turnout.

Dentistry From The Heart (DFTH) is a national non-profit organization with a simple mission – making people smile. Founded in 2001 by a dentist in New Port Richey, Florida, DFTH was created to aid those in need, including the growing population of under-insured Americans. Over 100 million Americans lack dental insurance, and over 29 percent of adults have untreated cavities. Without events like DFTH, dental care simply isn’t an option for many of the uninsured. To date, DFTH has helped over 5,000 patients and provided over $1 million in dental care.

“Now more than ever, I know there are people out there that need my services, but have no means to afford them – whether they’re out of a job or just don’t have dental insurance. 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,” said Dr. Michael Westendorf.

The event will take place on Saturday, February 13, 2010 at Westendorf General Dentistry in Cincinnati. Starting at 8:00 am, Dr. Westendorf and his volunteers will treat however many patients they can service by 4:00 pm. For more information, visit the organization’s national website at

Dentistry From The Heart is a registered non-profit organization that offers free dental work for people who need it. Dr. Vincent Monticciolo founded the organization as a means to give back to the community and address the growing number of people without dental insurance. In the past eight years, Dentistry From The Heart events have contributed over $1 million in free dentistry and helped over 5,000 patients across the country.
