Fornetti Dental Center to offer free care event Feb. 22
IRON MOUNTAIN — The John Fornetti Dental Center again will participate in Dentistry From The Heart to provide free dental care for those in need Saturday, Feb. 22, at 100 S. Stephenson Ave. in Iron Mountain.
Drs. John and Dan Fornetti, along with Dr. Nicole Hartwig and their team of employees, volunteers and sponsors, will mark a 14th year of offering the choice of a free extraction, filling or hygiene cleaning to those age 18 and older who come in that day.
Registration will begin at 8 a.m., with patients seen on a first-come, first-served basis until 3 p.m.
The center’s parking lot will be converted into an outdoor waiting room, with a heated area and burn barrels. Those attending, however, still should dress for the cold.
The John Fornetti Dental Center’s 2019 event provided 104 people with roughly 273 procedures worth more than $40,000 in donated services.
Dentistry From The Heart was started in 2001 by New Port Richey, Fla., dentist Dr. Vincent J. Monticciolo as a way to help the growing number of Americans without dental insurance.
