Santa Rosa Beach Dental Teams Up to Donate $20,000 in Dentistry
April 18, 2015 by SoWal Staff
Dr. Amber Wiebe of Santa Rosa Beach Dental and husband, Dr. Olivier Broutin of Bluewater Bay Dental hosted their first annual “Dentistry from the Heart” event on April 3 at Bluewater Bay Dental with Dr. Anishkumar Patel of Panama City.
The three teams of professionals worked collaboratively to provide 64 patients with their choice of a complimentary filling, extraction or cleaning. One of the patients seen during the free dental event was found to have oral cancer, a disease that may have remained undiagnosed without this event. In addition to the time dedicated by hygienists, assistants and other dental professionals, a total of $20,000 of dental care was donated to the community in good faith. A number of local area businesses also made in kind donations to the event including Patterson Dental, Benco Dental and Publix Super Market.
While Dentistry From the Heart is a nationwide program, this was the inaugural year in Niceville. Dr. Wiebe and Dr. Broutin look forward to making this an annual event to help those in need in the local community. The services provided through Dentistry From The Heart not only helped patients’ teeth and overall health, it gave them a renewed reason to smile.
