On September 10, 2011, employees of Smiles Dental had the pleasure to participate with Compassion Ridgefield, a free medical and dental clinic for uninsured and under-insured residents of Ridgefield, Washington. Local churches, medical and dental offices, and nonprofit organizations hosted this event at View Ridge Middle School.
The daylong event included medical exams, eye exams and glasses, dental cleanings and emergency treatment. In addition, the event also included free haircuts, donated professional clothing for job interviews, kids activities and lunches.
Smiles volunteers helped with numerous tasks, such as patient registration and charting, dental assisting and sterilization. Inspired by Portland’s Compassion Connect events, Compassion Ridgefield was a huge success! Smiles Dental is grateful for the wonderful opportunity they had to give back and support the Ridgefield community!
