Two local dentists from Old Tappan , Dr. Mariliza LaCap her husband Dr. Darren Tong of Washington Dental Associates provided a day of free preventive dentistry, fillings, cleanings and emergency dental care for children ages 16 and under. The children did not have access elsewhere due to financial reasons. “Sometimes people need a helping hand—-this is just our way of showing we care”, said Dr. LaCap. By the end of the day, over $25,000 of dentistry was provided. This was their sixth year in providing this most needed service.
This special day of giving was held on February 18 (Friday) in their dental office, 19 Legion Drive in Bergenfield. A big thanks goes to Dr. Kim, Joanne Pascual, Lindsay Calderon, Lisa LaFazia, Jodi Wagmeister, Lourdes Sy, and Letty Morales for volunteering their time. All are team members of Washington Dental Associates. Also, a big shout out to the Bergenfield fire department for keeping the children busy with their firetruck tour.
The children who came to the office were treated to home baked cookies, oral hygiene instruction, a cleaning, fluoride treatment and free dentistry.
“This is wonderful that the doctors and their team do this for my children,” related a grateful Mom. “My children really feel special here. They are treated with dignity and patience. Everyone at the office are genuinely caring people.”
