Smile for East Coast Endodontics Volunteer Day in Hewlett
For the past 13 years East Coast Endodontics has offered free root canals to patients of the Coalition of Concerned Medical Professionals that has offered free medical care to patients for more than 45 years.
Drs. Evan Chugerman and Rebecca Gottlieb had fun showing a personalized sign. The other side reads “My Endodontist knows my roots.”
Drs. Pat Ng-a-Fook and Michael Feldman examined a patient using a microscope specially designed to get an in-depth inside view of the teeth.
Dr. Ehsan Farrokh prepped the patient’s mouth with an anesthetic injection.
Dr. Rebecca Gottlieb, assisted by Jackie Vazquez, inserted a rubber dam into the patient’s mouth to isolate the tooth.
