Area residents had even more reason to smile thanks to a partnership between Chicago area’s Dentist With a Heart, and First Family Dental clinics.
Dozens recently came out to First Family Dental in Aurora for their Third Annual Free Dental Health Care Day.
Patients young or old and in need of care could receive cleanings, x-rays, fillings, extractions, or diagnostic services completely free of charge.
Naperville Resident, Jose Zatatzi arrived at seven in the morning to get in line. “I’m here to get two fillings. I’m saving money. It would have been about $300 if I hadn’t come,” he said.
First Family Dental offers the exam day to give back to the community and to stress the importance of regular check ups.
Founder and President of First Family Dental, Ghassan Abboud, knows how expensive dental care can be for most families. “A lot of companies don’t offer dental insurance anymore so as a part of this community we like to give back some of what we get from them,” he said.
Dentists saw about 40 patients, and offered rain checks to patients who could not be scheduled.
