At RCT Endodontics, we are committed to using our expertise in modern root canal therapy to make an impact on the community. For this reason, we have continued the tradition of philanthropy with our third annual Save-a-Smile Day. To date, our teams have treated 65 patients since its inception in 2018. The total value of the treatments is valued at $126,580.
On Saturday, May 15th, our team of endodontists, dental assistants, and staff came together and volunteered to donate root canal treatments to adults and children that would have most likely lost their permanent tooth due to lack of accessibility and finances.
We are still on a mission to save as many natural teeth as possible! and excited more than ever! This year we worked with other organizations and dentists throughout Maryland to create awareness about the importance of preventative dental care in addition to providing endodontic treatments to low-income residents so that they can have the confidence necessary to work and support their families.
2021's Donated Endodontic Services:
