Events in Everett, Everett

I had a chance this afternoon to follow-up on the “Emergency Dental Care Event” today at All Family Dental in south Everett. I spoke with Dean Saunders who is the office manager. He told me that in addition to Dr. Colleen Tracy, two other dentists also participated. Her father, Dr. Ron Tracy and Dr. Paul Kahlon. Together the three contacted more than 3 dozen patients. In addition to the dentists, 3 dental assistants and two front office workers were also involved. Saunders said all of the people who participated were great and everyone appreciated the effort, including the 40 – 50 people who were turned away. The event came about after Dr. Colleen Tracy wanted to do volunteer work overseas but was unable to schedule the time away so she decided to volunteer right here at home. He says after today’s response, she was very happy she did.

Her office, located across from the Costco store on 19th Ave. SE is open today from 8:00am – 5:00pm. People began lining up at 9:00pm Friday night to take advantage of the offer. First in line was Kim Wilson of Marysville, who read about the event in the paper. “I broke a tooth about three weeks ago,” said Wilson. “I don’t have dental insurance or the $400 – $900 to have it fixed.” Others began lining up at 1:00am this morning and by 7:00am there were more than three dozen people in line.
