CEN­TRE­VILLE — Soist­man Fam­ily Den­tistry is proud to an­nounce its first Cen­tre­ville Smiles Den­tal Out­reach Day. The busi­ness’ mis­sion is to serve the com­mu­nity and pa­tients in need with ei­ther one com­pli­men­tary clean­ing, fill­ing, or ex­trac­tion on a first come, first served ba­sis. The event will be held at Soist­man Fam­ily Den­tistry at 100 Penn­syl­va­nia Av­enue in Cen­tre­ville.

Reg­is­tra­tion for the event will be­gin at 7 a.m. on the day of the event, Saturday, Oct. 15. Pa­tients will be pre­screened and given a num­ber and asked to wait out­side un­til they are called for treat­ment. Pa­tients will not need to pro­vide any proof of in­come or lack of in­sur­ance to re­ceive treat­ment at the event.

“We want to help peo­ple that need help and wouldn’t oth­er­wise be able to get treat­ment,” said Dr. Jonathan Soist­man.

Last year, Soist­man par­tic­i­pated in Make A Dif­fer­ence, day pro­vid­ing sim­i­lar ser­vices on lo­ca­tion in Sudlersville in con­junc­tion with Dr. Robert Man­toni, of Sil­ver Spring, known as “The Mo­bile Den­tist.”

Soist­man said he hopes to make Cen­tre­ville Smiles Den­tal Out­reach Day an an­nual event to ben­e­fit those in Queen Anne’s County and the sur­round­ing area.

“Ev­ery one has a story, some­thing go­ing on in their life ... to have the added stress of tooth pain, if we can just play a lit­tle role in bright­en­ing some­one’s life, that’s what we want to do, mak­ing a dif­fer­ence one tooth at a time,” said Soist­man.

The of­fice has asked that in­ter­ested par­tic­i­pants re­frain from call­ing the of­fice ahead of time, in­stead sim­ply show up the day of the event to com­plete a reg­is­tra­tion form. It is also sug­gested to bring a fold­ing chair and book and food or drink if de­sired to help while passing the time.

There is limited park­ing on Penn­syl­va­nia Av­enue and Kid­well Av­enue at Soist­man Fam­ily Den­tistry. The of­fice sug­gests car­pool­ing if you know some­one also at­tend­ing the event.
