Dentist offers reason to smile

Father's Day contest to award one lucky dad a smile makeover.

A White Rock dental office plans to give a local dad a reason to smile this Father’s Day, with a contest offering free dental services.

Dr. Michael Layton of Peace Arch Dental said the idea for the giveaway came while volunteering at the free dental clinic at Peace Arch Hospital, where he and other local dentists volunteer their time providing basic dentistry to those in need.

“There are certain procedures like crowns, tooth replacement and cosmetic dentistry that we don’t have the resources to do (at the free clinic),” Layton said, noting many patients have missing or broken teeth that they’re unable to have fixed.

“So we’re asking the community to nominate a father, and we’ll do a dream smile makeover.”

Nominations can be made by calling the clinic at 604-531-0511 or emailing info@peacearchdental.com, and the deadline for entries is June 19.
