Napoleon dental practice offering free care Friday


NAPOLEON – Dental Excellence is hosting Smiles From the Heart – it’s 11th annual day of free dental care for the first 100 Northwest Ohio residents to register by noon.

Registration will start at 7:45 a.m. Friday at Dental Excellence’s Napoleon location. The Dental Excellence team will be donating its time and resources to provide those struggling to afford dental care with their choice of a free extraction, filling, or cleaning. Treatment will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Early registration is not available.

Over the past 11 years, Dr. Michael Carpenter, Founder/Owner of Dental Excellence, and his team of dentists, hygienists, and assistants have provided hundreds of patients with free dentistry.

“It’s our way of giving back to the community,” said Carpenter. “This day is as rewarding for us as it is for our patients. Many people don’t realize their oral health directly impacts many aspects of their overall health. To help prevent tooth decay, pain, and disease for people who otherwise may not have their needs addressed, is incredibly rewarding.”

Dental Excellence of Napoleon is located at 875 Westmoreland Avenue, next to Napoleon City Schools.
