'Free Dental Day' in Orange Park offering extractions, fillings, and treatments at no cost

Patients will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

ORANGE PARK, Fla. — An Orange Park dental office has partnered with Florida Baptist Convention to host an event where dental procedures including extractions, fillings, and emergency treatments will be offered at no charge.

These services will be provided to patients between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. on April 3 by appointment only at Sunrise Emergency & Family Dental Care. 

Prior to the event, patients must attend a dental screening on Thursday, April 1 between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. to receive an appointment time to come back on April 3. 

Patients will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

The event will take place at Sunrise Emergency & Family Dental Care’s office located at 1700 Wells Road Suite #19, Orange Park. 

Five dentists, two hygienists, four dental assistants, and four office staff will be providing care to 50 patients between the dental office itself and Florida Baptist Convention’s Mobile Dental Unit. 

“There is too much need locally to not do something,” said Dr. Michael Thomasino of Sunrise Emergency & Family Dental Care. “There are too many people in our community that suffer from tooth pain and cannot afford to have anything done. And it’s a great opportunity for our team to give back and help those that wouldn’t otherwise have the means.”
