On May 6, from 8 am to 3 pm, Putnam Dental Associates will provide the first 100 people with free dental care.

The organization is called Dentistry from the Heart, which is worldwide and non-profit, and provides free dental care for those in need. Every year, thousands of dental professionals from across the country choose to give back to their communities.

Dr. Ern and his staff at Putnam Dental Associates will open their doors at 8 am at their offices located at 2435 Rt. 6 in Brewster. The first 100 people will be provided either a free cleaning, tooth extraction, or filling by Dr. Ern and his entire staff of volunteers. The good doctor has donated more than $55,000 in free dental services over the last six years. He told eventful.com:

It all comes down to wanting to provide something greater to my community.

Dentistry from the Heart's mission statement is to reach to those in need of dental care who are unable to afford it. Dr. Ern went on to say:

The services provided by Dentistry from the Heart helps more than just a patient's teeth, it gives them a renewed reason to smile.
