Celebrating its 10th year, the free care day has grown from an average of 100-120 patients to a high point last year of 250 patients. The Arrowhead staff are joined by an increasing number of volunteers from other dental programs from around the state.

Individuals and entire families who could not afford a dentist on their own come for care to the event. Treatments can include anything from basic cleaning, x-rays and exam to some basic surgery and extractions. Follow-up visits are provided when necessary.

Chariho Rotary is supporting Dentistry from the Heart with a $200 donation.
