‘Kokua Smiles’ offers free dental care for underserved community

Dental Care of Pearlridge and Waialae Dental Care will be offering free dental procedures to the public on Friday, October 7, 2016 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This is the third year that the two practices will be partnering to present Kokua Smiles, a one-day event to serve those in the community who cannot afford regular dental care.

The event benefits individuals and families, such as those served by Goodwill Hawaii. Goodwill’s mission is to help people with employment barriers reach their full potential and become self-sufficient.

Many of Goodwill’s clients are unable to obtain proper dental care as they are searching for employment.

Dental Care of Pearlridge is located at 98-1005 Moanalua Road, Suite #2000, and Waialae Dental Care, at 4211 Waialae Avenue, Suite #111

Appointments for either location may be made in advance by calling Dental Care of Pearlridge at (808) 489-9530 or Waialae Dental Care at (808) 732-4377.

Walk-ins are also welcome on a first-come, first-served basis. Procedures must be accomplished within one visit and are limited to one procedure per patient.

Some examples of procedures that may be performed are cleanings, sealants, fillings and extractions. No crowns, dentures, root canals or other complex restorative procedures will be performed that day.
