At Howard Family Dental, we have proudly offered a ‘Free Dental Day’ for the past 6 years. During Free Dental Day, our dentists and their teams provide one free service for both children and adults; they can choose between a cleaning, filling, or extraction. The event is first come, first serve.
Over the last few years, the event has grown and includes many community organizations. America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia and Target Distribution brings food for those who are in need. Help a Child Smile brings a bus, fully equipped with dental chairs, hygiene supplies and even an x-ray machine and technician. Strickland’s Funeral Home, Auto Zone and Calvary Assembly of God generously allow parking and many local restaurants offer food donations for our volunteers.
The event is held at our Pooler location, 91 Brighton Woods Drive, every year the Friday before Thanksgiving. It is our way of giving thanks and appreciation to the community.
This past year we saw 223 patients; we completed 55 cleanings, 49 fillings, 106 extractions and saw 13 children. We are so grateful to all that volunteered their time, material and resources to make Howard Family Dental Free Dental Day a success. We are looking forward to next year’s event!
