Need Dental work? Office will offer it free on Feb. 11

If you need free dental work — and you don't mind camping out for it — mark your calendar for Feb. 11. That's the day Monticciolo Sedation and Family Dentistry plans to provide free fillings, cleanings and extractions to people on a first-come, first-served basis. Dr. Vincent Monticciolo founded the Dentistry from the Heart program in 2001 to provide free dental care around Valentine's Day. "People who don't have insurance or can't afford dental work don't have many low-cost or free care options available to them," Monticciolo said. "Our passion is to give back to our community, helping the best way we can through donating our dental care services." Monticciolo and his staff will start at 7:30 a.m. and will work a 10-hour day to help more than 500 patients at no cost. In the past few years, people have started lining up 24 hours in advance outside the dental offices at 4530 Grand Blvd. Other dental practices around the country also plan to participate in what has become a national event.
