Bergen County dental office offers a day of FREE dentistry, providing over $16,000 worth of dental treatment on October 8th, 2019
Bergenfield, NJ – Drs. LaCap and Tong hosted their annual Day of Free Dentistry event – providing Over $16,000 worth of dental treatment to Bergen County residents.
The event was on a “first come, first served” basis. The line began as early as 8am, with people lined up around the block. People traveled from all over Bergen County to come to the Doctors’ Bergenfield office located at 19 Legion Drive.
Dawning blue t-shirts with angel wings on the back, Dr. Mariliza LaCap and Dr. Darren Tong, with their Smile Team of 22 volunteers, including their associates, Dr. Andres Munoz, Dr. Radhika Shah, Dr. Michael Davidson, and Dr. Jonathan Gellis, provided FREE dentistry to the local community. Each person received a filling, extraction, or a dental cleaning. $16,000 in dental services were performed between 9:30 am and 4:30 pm. This brings the total amount of free work done by Washington Dental Associates and Smile More Dentistry to be well over $150,000 in the past 10 years.
Dr. LaCap said, “We chose the month before Thanksgiving for our Day of Free Dentistry because we are so thankful for the blessings we have received throughout our dental career. Our entire team is excited to be able to give much needed care to those who cannot afford the treatment. As a growing number of Americans are out of a job or just don’t have dental insurance, we felt this was a great way to help address the problem and to give back to the Bergen County community.”
“Our goal for the day was simple – making people smile. Believe me, the smiles and thanks we received from all the people we treated made the hard work one of the most rewarding experiences of our lives,” said Dr. Tong.
Thanks and appreciation goes to all the Bergenfield local businesses and groups that through their generous donations helped us make this event so successful: La Mesa, CareCredit, Henry Schein, Dunkin’ Donuts, Siera Madre, and Sariling Atin
