BELLEVUE, Wis. (WBAY) — Dentistry from the Heart, a national non-profit organization, set up at Bellevue Family Dentistry on Saturday, to offer free dentistry services to those who my otherwise not be able to afford it.
“The last cleaning I was supposed to have was in December. I’m kind of delayed in getting that because I haven’t found a new dentist,” said Yvonne Truckey of De Pere. She’s shopping around for a new dentist after hers retired.
Dentists in the Green Bay area teamed up to offer free cleanings, tooth extractions and cavity fillings.
“I just got a cleaning done today. I haven’t had it done in years. It’s nice that the dentist is offering it for low income to get work done that they don’t normally do,” said Sarah Sarratt, of Townsend.
Organizers expect to help about 175 people. To keep people moving, patients first go into the triage trailer to find out what care they need.
“They take the X-Rays in there and they get them numb and the patient comes in here and we’re able to put them right in the chair and get the treatment done,” said Candace Rabis, event coordinator.
Dentists say taking care of your teeth is crucial to your overall health.
“We know that gum disease has been linked to a lot of other systemic diseases in the body. So, being able to help patients just get back into wellness with their mouth and their whole body is just really important,” said Rabis.
But a lot of times, needed procedures can get very expensive if paying out of pocket.
“We have local oral surgeons that are here doing extractions. Those can vary in price from $160 to $500 depending on the severity. Fillings can range anywhere from $200 to $500.”
This is the fourth year Bellevue Family Dentistry hosted the free event.

Schaumburg Dental Studio Offers Gentle Tooth Extractions in Schaumburg, IL and Lasting Tooth Replacements
In rare cases, having one or more teeth extracted is the best thing patients can do for their oral health. Drs. Patel and Neumann never extract teeth without first determining that it is the right move for each patient’s situation. Generally, tooth extractions are reserved for cases of abscessed teeth, severe tooth decay, advanced gum disease and other serious dental and periodontal problems. When the skilled dentists determine that a tooth extraction is necessary, they go to great lengths to ensure the extraction process is gentle and quick. Patients who undergo a tooth extraction in Schaumburg, IL, and surrounding areas have a few options when it comes to tooth replacement. However, Drs. Patel and Neumann recommend dental implants for most patients because they last for many years, fully restore dental function and prevent the bone beneath the missing teeth from degrading.
Dental implant placement is a months-long process that is completed in several steps. First, the bone beneath the missing tooth is surgically uncovered and an implant post is placed inside. As the bone heals, it grows around the post and holds it securely in place. Once this process is complete, the top of the post is surgically uncovered and an abutment is attached to it. Finally, the implant restoration (a natural-looking porcelain crown) is attached firmly to the top of the abutment. The end result is an instantly improved smile that looks and feels very natural.
Patients in need of tooth extraction in Schaumburg, IL, and surrounding areas are encouraged to consider replacing their missing teeth with dental implants. To schedule a consultation with Drs. Patel and Neumann, patients are invited to call Schaumburg Dental Studio at 847-348-8673.
