Free dental treatment for those in need offered during Fourth Annual Day of Caring
Mar 05, 2013

Edmonds Woodway Dental Care will open its practice to those who cannot afford regular dental care during their Fourth Day of Caring on Saturday, March 23.

Free dental service will be offered from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Edmonds Woodway Dental Care, 6100 219th Street SW, Suite 530, in Mountlake Terrace.

“The Day of Caring has proven to be a great way to help take care of our neighbors,” said Dr. Michael Hrankowski.

During the last Day of Caring, doctors provided treatment for 64 people.

Dr. Hrankowski said treatment would be offered on a first come, first served basis, with priority given to people in pain or with infections.

“To accommodate as many people as possible, we will provide only procedures that can be accomplished in one appointment and there is a limit of one procedure per person,” Dr. Hrankowski said.

He noted the types of procedures that can be done in one appointment include extractions, fillings and other symptomatic treatment.  No root canal treatments or cleanings will be performed.

Dr. Hrankowski is grateful to the three other dentists who have graciously volunteered their time for the Day of Caring in order that more people might be served.

The dentists are Matthew Aldridge, DDS  from Oasis Dental in Vancouver, Washington; Brian Dillon, DDS , from Brian J Dillon Family Dentistry in Redmond; and, Matthew Kelley, DDS from Kelley Family Dentistry in Mountlake Terrace.

In addition, three hygienists and 10 assistants have volunteered their time for the Day of Caring.

Colgate and Patterson Dental Supply Company are providing supplies and additional equipment for the Day of Caring.  Also donating services are DP Incorporated Tenant Construction Services and the Saunderson Marketing Group, both from Seattle.  Dr. Hrankowski also thanked BPB Lunch Box's in Lynnwood for providing volunteer meals.

Due to the expected demand, the doctors cannot guarantee everyone who shows up will be seen. “Come early for best chance at being seen, but please, not before 6 a.m.,” Dr. Hrankowski said.
