Free Dental Care on Saturday October 27, 2018
Annual Free Dental Care Calgary Event
Macleod Trail Dental has partnered up with Dentistry From The Heart to offer free dental care on Saturday October 27, 2018!
We welcome you to join us for our first annual Free Dental Care event! We partnered up with the incredible organization Dentistry From The Heart to provide free tooth extraction, free teeth cleaning, and free fillings for an entire day. You must be at least 18 years old to take advantage of this first-come-first-served opportunity.
After everything our community has helped us to accomplish, we can’t wait to give back. Dental care is important to your overall health and wellbeing but not everyone has access to a dentist. This day is dedicated to anyone who cannot otherwise obtain dental care.
It’s first come, first serve. We will schedule the people in line, and give them a time to come back at so that they are not in line all day and tell others to go home. We expect to be able to handle about 30 people at each clinic. If we get more dentists to help, this number may increase.
We would like this to be a positive and successful experience so that in future years more people will volunteer to help us make the event an annual occurrence. The success of this event is dependant on a positive experience for our staff, patients, and public opinion.
Do I Qualify for Free Dental Care?
To receive free dental care from our Calgary dentist, you must be over 18 years old. We recommend arriving early because we expect a big turnout for this event and can only serve people on a first-come-first-served basis.
What Services Will Be Offered?
We will offer your choice of a free filling, free cleaning, or free tooth extraction. Yes, it is truly free!
