Lincroft Dentist Awards Prizes to Cavity-Free Patients

LINCROFT, NJ--(Marketwired - June 18, 2015) - Dr. Mitchel Friedman, a dedicated Lincroft family dentist, recently held a giveaway for his younger patients who have stayed cavity free.

Dr. Friedman has been a dentist for 31 years and has held the annual "No Cavity Club" giveaway for 27 years. The "No Cavity Club" awards prizes to children who stay free of tooth decay.

"It’s a great a program that encourages the youngsters in the community to take care of their teeth," Dr. Friedman said. "All they had to do was practice good brushing and flossing techniques and come see us for their regular cleanings and exams."

All children in this year’s "No Cavity Club" received a free ticket to see the Lakewood Blueclaws, the minor league affiliate for the Philadelphia Phillies, and a flashing toothbrush. The winners included Dante Aguiar, Thomas Mugavero, Gustave Duarte, Serafina Alvelo, Anna Berson and Nora Sarcone. In addition to the tickets and toothbrushes, the winners had their choice of an assortment of DVDs and toys.

"By awarding children for good oral health, we are hoping to keep children interested in their dental care for the rest of their lives," Dr. Friedman said.

Volunteers treated nearly 90 patients this year, and Dr. Friedman and his dedicated group of volunteers have given away about $390,000 in dental care since the event came to Lincroft in 2007.
