Burkhart Proudly Supports the 1st Annual Dentistry From The Heart Event

dentistry from the heart

Burkhart was proud to be a sponsor of the 1St Annual Dentistry From The Heart event in Salinas, California on February 7, 2014. The event was put together by Dr. Gary Klugman of Blanco Circle Dental Care. The one day event helped treat 145 patients and provided over $75,000 of free dental care to those in need.

Becky Zwingman, RDA, from Blanco Circle Dental Care describes her experience.

The event was definitely awesome, I must say myself. Words can’t describe the feeling of walking up to the office at 5:30 A.M. and seeing two tents on our lawn and knowing people were camping out and already lined up the night before, starting at 11:30 P.M. Thursday night. It was a great feeling to be able to sit back on Friday and watch all my hard work of putting together this event play out and unravel before my eyes. We were able to treat 120 patients on Friday. The last patient walked out at 6:30 P.M. (we were supposed to end at 5:00 P.M.). We currently scheduled another 25 patients within this last week since we ran out of time on the day of the event. I totaled the dollar value for this event and it came to $75,000. I must say, I was exhausted beyond belief and hurting Friday night. I don’t think I was myself again until Sunday.

Thank you Dr. Klugman and Blanco Circle Dental Care for creating such an incredible event in your community!
