Donating Dentistry Is At The Heart Of What We Do

What Is
Servants of Smiles

Servants of Smiles (SOS) - a beacon of hope for those without access to regular dental care.  Our organization is dedicated to bringing smiles to those in need through  a one-day community event held in private dental offices.  Generous practitioners and their teams donate their time and services, offering a range of essential dental treatments including dental cleanings, fillings, and tooth extractions - all completely free of charge to the community we serve. 

At Servants of Smiles, our foundation is built on compassion and a collective commitment to uplift our community for the betterment of all.  We believe that every smile matters, and through our dedicated efforts, we aim to make a lasting impact on the lives of those we serve.  Check below for our next upcoming event!

Why Our
Free Dentistry Day Matters

According to the CareQuest Institute for Oral Health, 76.5 million adults in the U.S. do not have dental insurance and many go without preventative dental treatment and procedures they need, simply because they do not have the financial means to pay for it.

Oral health is vital to a person’s overall health and well-being. Common dental issues such as cavities and gum disease can affect not only your ability to speak or eat properly, but if left untreated, can lead to many problems:

- Issues such as tooth loss, tooth misalignment, or periodontal disease

- Periodontal disease-related heart disease, diabetes, oral cancer, stroke, and kidney disease

- The need for lengthy, expensive dental work to correct

- Self-esteem and confidence issues

People who are unable to regularly visit the dentist have the opportunity to receive select services provided during Free Dentistry Day events to improve the quality of not just their oral health, but their overall health and well-being.

Free Dental Day Services

All patients have the option to choose between one of the following:

Filling

We use the latest technology and updated products to benefit you and your dental health. We are proud to use the best treatment methods so we can delight our patients with great results.

Sometimes even the best preventive care can’t eliminate the need for surgery. We offer an extraction or a wisdom tooth removal. We perform these surgeries with as little pain as possible to assure a quick recovery.

Registration will begin at 7:00am the morning of the event! We operate on a first come first seen basis.

 

Registration for Servants of Smiles starts at 7:00am! However, it will run on a first come first serve basis. The earlier you arrive the better chance you will get to be seen. We have had patients who have chosen to spend the night to guarantee their spot in line!

Nothing but your smiling face! Please be aware the line will be outside so dress accordingly to the weather for that day! You may bring umbrellas, lawn chairs, a book, anything to make you comfortable while your wait for your turn. We recommend to bring snacks or a packed lunch in case you get hungry while waiting!

No, when you go through the registration line we will have paperwork for you to fill out. You do not need any form of ID. Just bring your smiling face!

If you are in the front of the registration line you will be seen fairly quickly. If you are towards the middle or end of the line you might not be seen till later in the afternoon. In this case, you are welcome to leave or sit in your car. However, if your number is called and you are not present we must move to the next number in line.

For every Servants of Smiles Event, see signs for designated parking areas.

This event is primarily for adults. There are options such as Medicaid and Medicare for children to seek medical attention. With adults it's harder to seek help and we want to give back to those in need.

If the team hosting the event has team members volunteering that can speak Spanish, they will be available to translate.

No, rain or shine the event must go on!

Every year, 2 months before the event, we have an automated voice message when you call the Servants of Smiles phone number that tells you all the information you need to know. You can also email us at info@servnatsofsmiles.com and we will reply within the 2 months of the event.
