On August 9th local dental professionals, LTlov and community volunteers came together for our 7th annual Kids Free Dental Day at the Lakeway Dental Office to provide oral health care to local children whose financial circumstances prevent basic dental visits. Each patient received a thorough cleaning and dentist’s exam including x-rays and sealants as needed. Services such as fillings and extractions were performed on the spot in many cases so patients went home with a healthy mouth and a sparkling smile. Over 60% of the children were return patients and 8 patients require follow-up care.
Smiles on both the patients’ and parents’ faces reflected the generous spirit of the dental professionals and support staff that made this day possible. We greatly appreciated the significant role of each volunteer including dentists and staff from our host, Dr. Robby Robinson with Dr. Chris Kimball and the staff of the Lakeway Dental Office, Dr. Trisha Kimes and the staff of Sage Dentistry Austin, Dr. Kendal Shipp with Shipp Family Dentistry, Dr. Clayton Hamilton and Dr. Trevor Hamilton with Hamilton Dental, Dr. Daniel Eaddy and Eaddy Dentistry and Dr. Walkiria Rivera from C & C Dentistry. Thank you to all who gave their time and energy to make this event a tremendous success!
