Smiles Dental will provide free cleaning and restorative services in Camas for local residents

Appointments must be made Feb. 16

Smiles Dental will continue its annual free dental day at several area locations.

The Gift of Smiles event will be held Friday, Feb. 17, at 19221 S.E. 34th St., Camas.

Area residents can call the day before the event to schedule a one hour appointment for either a cleaning or restorative dental work. Restorative work includes fillings, extractions or anything that can be done in one hour, and does not require additional labs.

Lauren Seeger, marketing manager for Smiles Dental, said the Gift of Smiles effort is a day of service in which the staff experiences the reward of taking care of people who are in pain, or who otherwise do not have access to regular dental care.

Due to the popularity of this event, dentists and hygienists can only see patients who are scheduled in advance.

The Camas office can be reached at 882-9595. The phone lines will open Thursday, Feb. 16, at 8 a.m.

Other Gifts of Smiles events will be held Friday, Feb. 24, at Smiles Dental, 109 S. 65th Ave., Ste. 104, Ridgefield; and 10009 Hazel Dell Ave., Hazel Dell.

To schedule appointments for those locations, call 887-2333 (Ridgefield), or 574-3070 (Hazel Dell).
