Gainesville Dental Group will offer free dental care through its eighth annual Dentists with Heart event from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 18. The dentist office is located at 1026 Thompson Bridge Road. Dentists, hygienists and staff from Gainesville Dental Group donate their time, supplies and expertise to make the event possible. There are no income or insurance thresholds that need to be met to receive free dental service that day.

The group served 100 patients through the free dental care day in 2015, according to a press release.

Those interested in receiving dental care should arrive early to receive a number and a time to come back for their appointment. Numbers will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

It makes me happy to provide a service to someone in need and see them truly touched, said Donna Shewbert, a hygienist at Gainesville Dental Group, in the release.

Becca Goodwin, another hygienist on the team, said in the release, We are here to serve others, and Dentists with Heart is a way for me to do just that.

Patients come from across North Georgia to attend the clinic and have the option to choose from a dental cleaning or a treatment. Over the years, the Gainesville Dental Group team has provided services from X-rays and tooth extractions to denture repairs and fillings.

There is an ever-present need for dental care in our community, said Dr. Mike Vetter, a dentist at Gainesville Dental Group.People care about the health of their mouth, but many can’t afford the insurance or out-of-pocket expense for regular exams or treatments. We created Dentists with Heart to help meet this growing need.

Our Patient Reviews

Bev M.

Very happy with the staff at Gainesville Dental Group. The doctors are caring and experienced. I never am left in the waiting room. The hygienist always ask thorough questions and report to the doctor before the exam, saving me from having to repeat everything. Highly recommend.

I came to Gainesville Dental Group with a crown that was in bad shape and painful. Dr. Vetter was very knowledgeable about what needed to be done and went to great lengths to ensure the treatment to resolve the problem was in my best interest. He and assistant Sarah Riley were very professional yet personable. They worked together seamlessly in a manner that put me at ease and were very focused on fixing the tooth. Any physical discomfort was minimal and both Dr. Vetter and Sarah were encouraging and positive. A very good experience.

I come to Gainesville Dental Group for my routine cleanings and absolutely love it! It’s very clean and I love how up to date they are with digital X-rays and photos of the teeth. I had to have a filling and they were able to point out on the screen where my cavity was on the X-ray. It’s much easier getting the work done when you have an understanding of what the doctor is doing! Dr. Vetter did my filling and the whole procedure was pain free! I can’t say enough good things about this group!

Dr. Gannon and Hannah were great. They talked me thru my procedure and made sure I was comfortable and pain free. The office was friendly and pleasant. My hubby and son have used them and liked them. I've found a new dentist! Thank You GDG.

This is by far the best dental group I have been to in a long time. The staff is wonderful and caring. From the front office to the Dentists are a class act. Very kind and explain step by step. High quality work. Don't plan on going anywhere else. My husband has had the same experience. Do yourself a favor and check them out. Tell them Lorrie sent you

Bruce Y.

Great dental visit! Went in for annual cleaning and x-rays. Donna did an awesome job and pointed out a potential issue which she brought up to the doctor who concurred. It was an excellent visit. Thank you to the "team" @ Gainesville Dental Group.
