A New Port Richey dentist is giving back to the community Friday, February 5th by offering free dental services to those in need.

For the past fifteen years, Dr. Vincent Monticciolo and his team of dentists have helped hundreds of people needing filling, extraction and cleanings.

Dr. Monticciolo founded Dentistry From The Heart, a national non-profit organization that has one simple mission: making people smile. He believes dental care simply isn't an option for many who lack dental insurance.

"Now more than ever, I know there's people out there that need my services, but have no means to afford them whether they're out of a job, or just don't have dental insurance," said Dr. Monticciolo. "This Dentistry From The Heart event is my way of giving back to the community, and being there for the people who are in need of dental work."

Friday's Dentistry From The Heart event will take place at Monticciolo Family & Sedation Dentistry at 5139 Little Road in New Port Richey. Dr. Monticciolo and his volunteers plan to treat the first 500 patients, or however many they can service between 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
