HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Dental Care of Pearlridge and Waialae Dental Care will be offering free dental procedures to the public on Friday, July 17, 2015. This is the second 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.
Kokua Smiles will benefit 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. Walk-ins are welcome but will be seen 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.
