Dentistry From The Heart Cancelation Notice

“Dentistry from the Heart,” which was scheduled for Saturday, March 21, has been cancelled due to concerns about coronavirus.  For the past 8 years, the event has provided thousands of local James City County patients with free cleanings, extractions or fillings – and we are cancelling the event only after careful consideration. While we are disappointed to have to make this decision, we are also confident that putting safety first is the right thing to do.  In the past, “Dentistry from the Heart” has brought together dozens of hygienists, dental assistants, dental professionals and volunteers donating their time and resources in order to provide thousands of dollars in free dental care and much needed relief to people in need in the community. But as you might imagine, this creates a high-density environment where patients and staff are all in close quarters. At a time when coronavirus is spreading quickly, we believe it’s prudent to cancel rather than risk the health of our patients. We hope to resume this event in 2021 because it is an important service to our community that we have been committed to for the past 8 years.  The CDC has provided information about what you can do to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Please take a look at these resources – and take care.  Steps to Prevent Illness Frequently Asked Questions and Answers Frequently Asked Questions and Answers
