Bolivia, NC – April 19, 2018 – With 2 weeks to go, preparations are well underway at Coastal Cosmetic Family Dentistry for the annual ‘Dentistry from The Heart’ event at the Bolivia office on Friday May 4th. Dental services will once again be provided to the community for free on a first-come, first-served basis at their Bolivia office.
Volunteers arrive at dawn to make the day run smoothly and the patients feel welcomed and comfortable while they wait to be treated. Over 200 local residents will receive treatment including exams, x-rays, cleanings or and extractions at the event. For some patients this will be welcomed relief from ongoing dental problems. For some, the only opportunity to have an annual check-up and cleaning. Patients arrive in the middle of the night to take an early place on line, which confirms for doctors Michelakis, Wilharm, Harrington, Miller, Hohl , Dombransky and Liu how great the need is in Brunswick County.

Over 100 volunteers help with preparations, treatment and care – with one goal for the day.to make people smile.
