Children's Community Dental Day In Kennewick

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-- Close to 40 lucky kids got their teeth checked for free, and some were lining up outside the door early.

"We've had kids waiting at the door when we got here at seven o'clock, one mother said she's been here since 3:30 to get her spot," said Dr. Ron Snyder, with Creekside Dental.

Creekside Dental opened its door for the Children's Community Dental Day. Doctors say they've seen a variety of things.

"We've seen kids that need their teeth cleaned, we've seen cavities," said Dr. Snyder.

But not everyone got off that easy. This 10-year-old came in for a root canal and he says he was there for about two hours.

"I can't feel my cheek," said Tony Nava, who came in to the dentist

Parents say they're glad they can take advantage of these services, because they don't know it all.

"There can be things wrong with their teeth you don't always see just from looking at them yourself so it's good to have them brought in, so if there's any problems early you can correct it," said Russell Meyer, a father who brought his two-year-old to the dentist.
