Dentistry From the Heart

Friday February 8th was "Dentistry From the Heart" Day in Denham Springs, Louisiana. Hats off to Dr. Ed Hood - a local dentist with the heart to give back to his community. This is the 3rd year in a row that he used his office, called together his dentist friends, and served as many people as they could - ALL for FREE!

There were people waiting at his door at 3am on that cold Friday morning. Dr. Hood had asked if we could bring Mo, our dental unit, to add 2 more dental chairs to the fun. Bill Bergeron (one of our drivers) brought Mo at 6am, and had to manuver through the crowd. One of our dental assistant volunteers, Stacey Adams, spent the day assisting the dentists in the mobile clinic.

The totals for the day: approximately 100 people, 88 extractions, 31 fillings and 19 cleanings!! The dental unit saw 13 of those patients and did 25 extractions.

You are an awesome blessing Dr. Hood and your whole team! Looking forward to next year.

I got there at 3:15, and I was # 8 in line. Numbers 1 and 2 got there at 1:30 am. I was so excited to see HPC being a part of this.
