Free Children's Dental Cleanings

Have a Heart Day 2013 will be February 2nd, 20013 from 8am to 12pm. By appointment - 816-452-2000 Northland dentist Robert G. Marx began Have a Heart Day, one Saturday in February, 25 years ago to provide free dental cleanings and full dental exams for the children of the community who need dental care but who have been unable to receive regular dental care. With the economy greatly impacting families’ ability to provide dental care for their children, the need for dental care for children has increased exponentially. While Dr Marx was the first dentist in Kansas City, to recognize and then provide this care to those unable to receive it, the demand now requires help from many more dentist. Fortunately various other organizations and many other dentist have followed Dr. Marx’s example and with that many children are being helped in our community. In February each year for the past 24 years, Dr. Marx has provided this service for the children of the community who need dental care but who have been unable to receive regular dental care. This year we have 130 appointments already set. Each child will get a professional teeth cleaning, X-rays and a thorough oral exam, along with a toothbrush, toothpaste and other goodies donated by local merchants. Those needing treatment will be scheduled back for future appointments at no cost to their parents. Call for an appointment 816-452-2000
