Dentists Treat Kids for Free

EUGENE, Ore. — Some kids went to the dentist Friday and got cleanings, x-rays and exams all for free.

It was Give Kids a Smile Day at Magnuson Dental in Eugene, which is part of Lane County Dental Care Day.

Dental Care Day happens four or five times a year, but on Friday it was just for kids.

“At least for my husband and I, and my son works in our office and my daughter-in-law’s a hygienist, you get a very comfortable living, and so why wouldn’t you want to give back?” said organizer Debby Magnuson.

The office saw between 25 and 30 kids Friday morning, and the staff was made up of dentists, dental students and hygienists who donated their time.
