Springfield Dentist has Free Care Day

Updated: Thursday, June 19 2014, 11:23 AM CDT

A dentistry office in Springfield calls today their favorite day of the year. Why?

It's the day they give away thousands of dollars in dental care to Illinois residents at no charge.

It's called Dentistry from the Heart. Advanced Dental Care of Springfield has participated for five years now. Anyone with a valid ID, over 21, and not pregnant can line up to get their teeth cleaned, filled, or extracted for free.

Advanced Dental Care owner, Dr. Matt VanderMolen, says, "I have also done some overseas mission work, like a lot of doctors have, and that's always very gratifying. But when you come home and you see people and hear about people in your own community that need the help, boy... I just feel like I'm helping more in my own community."

Dentistry from the Heart was started in Florida by Dr. Vince Monticello. The initiative now helps over 80,000 people each year at 200 events nationwide.
