Gift From the Heart

From April 9th to 15th was National Dental Hygienist Week and at Natural Smiles we celebrated the best way we could, with No-cost Dental Hygiene services. We were proud to take part in Gift From the Heart on Saturday, April 9th. We opened our doors and welcomed clients who cannot afford basic Dental Hygiene services and gave it to them for free. Gift From the Heart is an annual event that occurs across Canada in order to provide a basic health services for people who cannot afford it. GFTH was founded in 2009 and has provided over ½ million dollars’ worth of Dental Hygiene care since then. We were able to see eight clients that Saturday, providing them with Dental Hygiene instructions, scaling, and a fluoride treatment.

We were able to accomplish this with the help from the sponsors of Gift From the Heart; Henry Schein, CDHA, Paradise Dental Technologies (PDT), and some special help from the Northwood Shopper’s Drug Mart which supplied the items for our loot bags. We look forward to participating in this event next year and opening our doors to people who need it.
