Dentistry from the Heart – a program that has spread around the world will take place in our neighbourhood this year, for the first time.

This program is designed to provide a day of free dental services for anyone who needs it.

On Sunday July 20/14, free dental services will be provided by Sheppard Village Dental, Suite 208, 4651 Sheppard Avenue East on the southeast corner of McCowan & Sheppard.

People needing dental services can simply go to the Sheppard Village Dental office on July 20 and will be treated on a ‘first come’ basis, throughout that day.

Sheppard Village Dental guarantees that a minimum of 50 people will receive free dental treatment at their office, on July 20

Twelve dentists, dental hygienists and staff – all volunteers – will provide the services that day.

With a growing number of Canadians lacking dental insurance, Dr. Malkit Brach and his associates believe this will be an effective way to address some potential health problems, while also giving back to our community.
