The 11th Annual Free Day of Dentistry Is Set for November 22!

October 15, 2019

We are excited to kick off the holiday season with our annual Free Day of Dentistry! The event will take place on Friday, November 22, 2019, at our Pooler office located at 91 Brighton Woods Drive. Over 100 volunteers from Howard Family Dental, Oral & Facial Surgery and Kid’s Dentistree will be on-hand to provide free dental services as a way to thank the community and help individuals and families who may have limited access to care. Both children and adults are welcome! The first 250 attendees will have the option to choose from one of these dental services:

  • A cleaning
  • A filling
  • An extraction

Additional Free Services Available

Not only will you have free access to dental care, but the following services will also be available:

  • Flu shots and blood pressure checks from Jim Brown, a Walgreen’s pharmacist
  • Food for the holidays from America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia
  • Free mammograms from the St. Joseph’s/Candler Mobile Mammography in collaboration with the Chatham County Health Department Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (BCCP).

There will also be information available on the Howard Hand in Hand program at St. Joseph’s/Candler, which provides support, education and guidance to children and teens with a family member facing a life-threatening disease.

Space Is Limited, So Arrive Early!

Services will be provided on a first come, first served basis. We’ll start handing out numbers at 6:30 a.m. Parking will be available in the Strickland’s Funeral Home and Calvary Assembly of God lots.

Hope to see you there!
