A local Gloucester County dental practice is doing its part to help out the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Main Street Dental began its “Smiles for the Shore” campaign this week. The practice has donated more than 1,000 toothbrushes, as well as toothpaste, to the victims of Hurricane Sandy. The goal of the campaign is to allow people affected by the storm to receive new items so they can continue to take care of their teeth.
"We understand that many fellow New Jersey residents lost everything and we want to do our part to help them keep their teeth and gums as healthy as possible," said practice administrator Larry Wallace in a press release. Wallace also sits on the Gloucester County Board of Freeholders and chairs the Republican Party in Gloucester County.
In addition to donating oral hygiene items, Main Street Dental is also collecting items such as blankets, nonperishable food, coats, shampoo, soap and school supplies at all four of its locations. Patients are encouraged to bring these items in to donate when they come for a visit.
Main Street Dental's four offices are located in Mullica Hill, Logan Township, Pennsville and Vineland. Check out their website for more information.
