For the past 6 years, Southland Smiles is proud to host Dentistry from the Heart, a free dentistry event for residents in the Chicagoland area. Our dentists and team perform cleanings, fillings, and extractions free of charge for patients that don't have the benefit of dental insurance, can’t afford dental treatment or is unable to receive dental care elsewhere. The event is first-come, first-served, but we will do everything we can to serve everyone that shows up.
Dentistry from the Heart began in 2001 with Dr. Vincent Monticciolo as a way to give back to the community and provide care to the growing number of Americans without dental insurance. It has grown to now include over 200 events nationwide and has served more than 80,000 people.
