Dentistry From The Heart began in 2001 with Dr. Vincent Monticciolo. He wanted to give back to the community and provide aid to the growing number of Americans without dental insurance. Dentistry From The Heart is a registered nonprofit organization that provides free dental work for people in need. Since its inception, Dentistry From The Heart has grown to include more than 200 annual events nationwide and has provided more than 60,000 people with an estimated $6 million in free dental care services.
