Dentists Dr. Mariliza LaCacap, her husband Dr. Darren Tong both Old Tappan residents, as well as the rest of their team, will be providing free dentistry for Veterans
This is an annual initiative they have been taking as a way of paying it forward to the community.
“It’s heartbreaking.” said Dr.Tong. “Imagine not being able to eat, sleep or work due to dental pain” The event will be on a “first come, first served” basis beginning at 9:30am and running until 2:30pm. Each person will be able to receive one free filling, extraction, or dental cleaning. “We chose the month before Thanksgiving for our Day of Free Dentistry because we are so thankful for the blessings that we have received throughout our dental careers.” Dr. LaCap said, “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 the financial means to afford proper dental care, we felt this was a great way to help address the problem and to pay it forward to the Bergen County community.” “Our goal for the day is simple – make people smile. Believe me, the smiles and thanks we receive from all the people we treat make the hard work one of the most rewarding experiences of our lives.” said Dr. Tong. If you or anyone else you know severely needs dental work, please let them know about this opportunity. Special thanks and appreciation goes to all of the Bergenfield local businesses and groups that have agreed to help make this event a success.
