Dentistry from the Heart

Dentistry From The Heart (DFTH), based in New Port Richey, Florida, is a worldwide nonprofit organization dedicated to providing dental care to those in need. Every year, thousands of individual dentists, hygienists, volunteers, and hundreds of practices across the world donate their time and resources to host their own DFTH events.
Dr. Vincent J. Monticciolo founded Dentistry From The Heart over 18 years ago, with the goal of giving back to those who cannot afford dental care. Those in the dental industry who have participated in this event have shown a giving and generous spirit in their communities. Each year hundreds of events take place where thousands of patients are helped and giving millions of dollars in free dental care.

Smiles for Life

HOW IT WORKS

Whiten Your Smile & Help a Child

From March through June, hundreds of dental practices throughout the U.S. and Canada professionally whiten teeth to raise money for seriously ill, disabled, and underprivileged children in their local communities and around the world. When you pay for your teeth whitening, you’ll write your check directly to the Smiles For Life Foundation, not to the dental practice. Fifty percent of the donations are earmarked for each dental practice’s local charity partner, and the balance goes to the Smiles For Life Foundation to be distributed to worthy and approved children’s charities across the U.S., Canada and worldwide.

Participating Smiles For Life dentists donate their time to professionally whiten your smile.

Ultradent, makers of Boost and Opalescence®, donates the teeth whitening materials.

100% of all proceeds go to the Smiles For Life Foundation, benefitting children all over the world.
