Smile Design Specialists had a great day meeting many new people from the area during their first Free Dentistry Day. Dr. Richard Ekstein and his staff devoted their Saturday to help the unemployed community and were glad that they did.
The event ran smoothly, as all patients arrived promptly for their scheduled appointments. Ekstein said he sponsored the event because in the difficult economy, sometimes the extra money for dental work is simply not affordable but people have a need that should be addressed so that a simple procedure would not turn into a larger problem, if it went uncared for.
Hygienists Liz and Sharon worked diligently on a wide range of people. They scaled, polished and took x-rays and found that most patients had taken good care of their teeth.
