Tampa Dentist, Dr. Totzke, DDS, of All Ages Dental Spa Is Serving the Underserved Through Upcoming Community Events
January 29, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsWhen it comes to a dentist with a heart for her community, Tampa dentist, Dr. Totzke, may top the list. She gives of her time and abilities in an effort to help those less fortunate as well as to inspire others nationally who have the resources to do the same.
"Many people get stuck in the mind-set that one person can't make a difference, but I believe we can," Dr. Totzke says. "There is power in numbers but change can start with one person. That's why I volunteer. I want to help better the lives of the underserved."
With two community events coming up in the beginning of February, many underinsured or uninsured community members in Hillsboro County, FL, will receive much needed dental help.
February 1st, 2013, the Hillsborough County Dental Society is putting on an event in Dover, FL at the Sun Coast Community Health Center. Starting at 6am, children pre-qualified through the Community Center can line up to begin receiving dental treatment. The volunteering dentists will be equipped to offer oral exams, teeth cleanings, x-rays, fillings, fluoride treatments, crowns, extractions, pulpotomies (toothache treatments), and more. This annual event restores oral health to many children in need. Last year children received approximately $70,000.00 worth of donated dental care.
"These events are important because they first and foremost, help many in need, and secondly, it builds positive camaraderie among dental professionals in the Hillsboro community. Together we can help make our community better and spending time with people who share common values inspires change," says Dr. Totzke.
A week later, on Friday, February 8th, Dr. Totzke will be donating her time at the Tampa dental office of Monticciolo Family and Sedation Dentistry. Dr. Monticciolo is hosting a free dentistry event sponsored by his international charity called Dentistry From The Heart. The organizers of the community event intend to provide free treatment to over 300 people in need. There is no pre-eligibility authorization required for the free dental services.
As the Vice President of the Hillsborough County Dental Association, Dr. Beatriz Totzke helps plan community events throughout the year. Her involvement with community services along with offering gentle, effective dentistry in her own private practice helps satisfy her desire to improve the lives of those around her.
