PANAMA​ ​CITY,​ ​FL​ ​—​ ​Dr.​ ​Anish​ ​Patel,​ ​a​ ​leading​ ​Panama​ ​City​ ​cosmetic​ ​dentist,​ ​is​ ​again offering​ ​one​ ​free​ ​day​ ​of​ ​dentistry​ ​for​ ​local​ ​residents​ ​who​ ​cannot​ ​afford​ ​regular​ ​dental care.

The​ ​annual​ ​event,​ ​Dentistry​ ​From​ ​The​ ​Heart,​ ​is​ ​scheduled​ ​for​ ​Nov.​ ​17.​ ​Throughout​ ​the day,​ ​the​ ​Panama​ ​City​ ​Smiles​ ​dental​ ​team​ ​will​ ​provide​ ​a​ ​free​ ​cleaning,​ ​filling,​ ​or extraction.​ ​This​ ​is​ ​the​ ​fourth​ ​year​ ​that​ ​Dr.​ ​Patel​ ​and​ ​his​ ​team​ ​at​ ​Panama​ ​City​ ​Smiles have​ ​provided​ ​a​ ​free​ ​day​ ​of​ ​dentistry.
The​ ​goal​ ​is​ ​to​ ​provide​ ​care​ ​for​ ​local​ ​residents​ ​without​ ​dental​ ​insurance​ ​or​ ​access​ ​to regular​ ​dental​ ​care.​ ​Over​ ​the​ ​last​ ​three​ ​years,​ ​Panama​ ​City​ ​Smiles​ ​has​ ​donated​ ​$128,181 in​ ​dental​ ​services.
“We’ve​ ​always​ ​had​ ​a​ ​great​ ​response​ ​from​ ​the​ ​community​ ​and​ ​local​ ​residents​ ​for​ ​this event,”​ ​said​ ​Dr.​ ​Patel,​ ​who​ ​operates​ ​Panama​ ​City​ ​Smiles.​ ​“​We’ve​ ​had​ ​patients​ ​that​ ​had never​ ​been​ ​to​ ​the​ ​dentist​ ​because​ ​they​ ​couldn’t​ ​afford​ ​it,​ ​people​ ​in​ ​between​ ​jobs​ ​that wanted​ ​to​ ​fix​ ​their​ ​problems,​ ​and​ ​patients​ ​that​ ​are​ ​in​ ​pain​ ​but​ ​can’t​ ​get​ ​treatment​ ​right away​ ​due​ ​to​ ​their​ ​insurance​ ​or​ ​cost.”
Panama​ ​City​ ​Smiles​ ​will​ ​guarantee​ ​care​ ​to​ ​the​ ​first​ ​100​ ​patients.​ ​Registration​ ​starts​ ​at 6:30​ ​a.m.​ ​and​ ​ends​ ​at​ ​9​ ​a.m.​ ​(or​ ​when​ ​they​ ​have​ ​200​ ​registrants),​ ​and​ ​the​ ​team​ ​will begin​ ​seeing​ ​patients​ ​at​ ​7​ ​a.m.​ ​Panama​ ​City​ ​Smiles’​ ​dentists,​ ​Dr.​ ​Patel​ ​and​ ​Dr.​ ​Trae Pappas,​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as​ ​Drs.​ ​Olivier​ ​Broutin,​ ​Gary​ ​Nanavati,​ ​and​ ​Eric​ ​Claussen​ ​(an​ ​oral surgeon).

“Giving​ ​back​ ​is​ ​the​ ​way​ ​we​ ​show​ ​appreciation​ ​to​ ​our​ ​community,”​ ​Dr.​ ​Patel​ ​said.​ ​“We would​ ​like​ ​to​ ​thank​ ​all​ ​of​ ​our​ ​wonderful​ ​patients​ ​and​ ​team​ ​for​ ​making​ ​this​ ​day​ ​possible every​ ​year.”
