Richland Dentist Offers Free Check-Up

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.- Some lucky people in Richland walked away from the dentist's office with big smiles Saturday. Cadwell Dental hosted their "Dentistry From The Heart" event.

Over 100 people signed up for free check-ups. The event was held to give back to the people of the Tri-Cities who need but may not be able to afford dental work.

"A simple hug, I mean who wouldn't want that?" said Jeff Rugan, Marketing Director for Cadwell Dental. "Who wouldn't want to give back and get that kind of human interaction and human emotion between two people? It's awesome."

This is the second year in a row Cadwell Dental has hosted this great event. They say they'd like to keep the tradition going next year.
