Dr. Tracy Murray is planning the latest Dentistry From The Heart event.
This will be the fourth year for the event. Murray and a team of dentists, sponsors and volunteers are hoping to help many people by treating patients in need of fillings, extractions and cleanings.
Dentistry From The Heart (DFTH) is a national non-profit organization founded in 2001 to aid those in need, including the growing population of under-insured Americans. More than 100 million Americans lack dental insurance and over 29 percent of adults have untreated cavities.
To date, Murray and his team have provided 416 community members with almost $122,000 worth of free dentistry.
“Now more than ever, I know there’s people out there that need my services, but have no means to afford them — whether they’re out of a job, or just don’t have dental insurance. This Dentistry From The Heart event is my way of giving back to the community, and being there for the people who are in need of dental work,” Murray said.
Murray and his team will host the event on Saturday, July 30, at Murray’s office at 1010 Gallia St., Portsmouth. Call the office to schedule an appointment at (740) 354-3368.
