Dentistry From the Heart
Smile! It's Free
From the time Dr. Watterson began in practice, it has been his dream to help to those in our community who can’t afford dental care. Dr. Watterson learned this by example. His parents have been doing dental mission work for over 25 years, spending several of those years living in Honduras providing dental care there. The needs here are as great as overseas. We were thrilled when we were introduced to Dentistry from the Heart.
Dentistry from the Heart is a nonprofit international organization which began in Florida with a dentist possessing a similar desire as Dr. Watterson. Because we love smiles and we love our community, Watterson Family Dentistry now partners with Dentistry from the Heart to provide free dental care days to the greater Jackson area. In March of 2013, August 2014 and March 2016, the team at Watterson Family Dentistry volunteered a Saturday to help meet the dental needs of those in our community. Cleanings, Fillings, and Extractions are performed on these days. All procedures are first-come/first-serve.
Dentistry from the Heart Days have become the highlight of our year! Cumulatively we have served over 250 patients with over $100,000 in FREE, quality dental care.
