La Jolla dentists lead event with Padres to provide free dental care to children


Drs. Jaime Breziner and Abraham Romanowsky are back at it! The doctors and staff of La Jolla Family Smile Design are once again teaming up with TeamSmile and professional sports teams to offer free dental care for children in need.

Last September, the staff of doctors, assistants, hygienists and administration volunteered with the San Diego Chargers at Qualcomm Stadium. Several Chargers players and cheerleaders joined the dental teams in providing a fun and rewarding experience that the children embraced. The event was a huge success — with hundreds of local youths getting much needed dental work.

On Saturday, July 9, 2016 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Boys & Girls Club of Greater San Diego — Conrad Prebys Branch, Dr. Breziner will lead a group of volunteer doctors across the city to volunteer with the San Diego Padres. While the team roster is changing, the nature of the event remains the same. La Jolla Family Smile Design and other supporting teams will be on hand to provide anything from exams, X-rays and cleanings to fillings and extractions. Just as important will be educating children on the importance of good oral hygiene.

TeamSmile is the nation’s premier advocacy group that partners oral health professionals with athletic organizations to provide life-changing dental care to underserved children in our communities.
