Volunteer Dental professionals will provide a free cleaning, extraction or filling to anyone 18 or older who attends the event. Dr. Misti Raman and Dr. Jim Raman, well known in the Columbia area for their participation in the Amazing Race TV show, claim this event as the best day of the year for the practice. Dentistry From The Heart demonstrates the practice’s culture of community and giving.
