Dentistry From The Heart
Way back in 2001, a man by the name of Vincent J. Monticciolo decided that he wanted to do something good. He was a dentist by trade, and he had grown tired of watching people ignore their oral health due to financial constraints. It was hurting people, and he decided to do something about it. So, that year he started the first ever Dentistry from the Heart day. Dentistry from the Heart is a day where anyone can come to see the dentist, regardless of insurance coverage or finances. If you need help, you can come see the dentist. Free. Fast forward 12 more years, and dental professionals around the world are holding their own Dentistry from the Heart events yearly. One such dentist happens to be one of Dr. Lowe’s respected colleagues in Victoria BC.
Dr. Ross Crapo D.D.S held his third annual Dentistry from the Heart event on September 28, 2013. He invited Dr. Lowe to join him, and how could he say no? “I came over to Victoria to help Ross with this event because A) he’s a friend, and B) it’s a great cause. It’s nice to help out people that are in need of dentistry that you know, maybe it’s not a great time, and they don’t have it in their budget at this time to do dentistry. So there’s a lot of need…” After all was said and done, thousands of dollars in free dental care had been provided, and many smiles were shared in that office. It was an exhausting day, but well worth the efforts. Our thanks go out to everyone involved in Dentistry from the Heart, not just to those who helped in the office, but also to those around the country and around the world who have dedicated at least one day to those who need care the most. Kudos to you! You can watch the full event video here:
