CEN­TRE­VILLE — Sat­ur­day, Oct. 15, brought good weather and plenty of smiles to the first Cen­tre­ville Smiles day hosted by Dr. Jonathan Soist­man and Soist­man Fam­ily Den­tistry of Cen­tre­ville. Soist­man was joined by Jared Nave, DDS, of Eas­ton and John Dav­likios, DMD, and Sam Pol­lina, DMD, of An­napo­lis, along with a host of staff and vol­un­teers.

The line be­gan to form at 5:45 a.m. said Laura Liv­ingston, of Soist­man Fam­ily Den­tistry, and the staff and pa­tients were grate­ful for the beau­ti­ful weather the day af­forded.

Out­door seat­ing was pro­vided by one of the many spon­sors, and vol­un­teers as­sisted pa­tients in get­ting to the right sta­tion and com­plet­ing nec­es­sary pa­per­work. Be­cause of the smooth flow and avail­abil­ity of do­nated re­sources, Liv­ingston said, the den­tists and staff were able to see 65 pa­tients. Sev­eral of those pa­tients were able to re­ceive a sec­ond ser­vice, like a tooth clean­ing af­ter an ex­trac­tion.

Liv­ingston said the pa­tients were com­pli­men­tary about the ser­vice they re­ceived, not­ing one told her, “I had a tooth pulled and it was ac­tu­ally fun.”

Soist­man plans to make the event an an­nual one.
