New Jersey dentists team up to give first responder a brand-new smile: ‘I feel more confident’

Two New Jersey dentists and other oral care professionals have teamed up to give a first responder the gift of a gorgeous new smile.

Dr. Jason Auerbach, CEO and founder of Riverside Oral Surgery practices, joined forces with Dr. Dayna Cassandra of DC Cosmetic Dentistry to form the Riverside Oral Surgery First Responders Initiative, which aims to “donate” restorative and cosmetic dental services to first responders.

Johnnie Ramos, a detective with the Passaic County Sheriff’s office in New Jersey, was the first recipient chosen to receive a new smile.

Looking ahead, Auerbach and Cassandra plan to perform one transformation each year through the SMILE initiative.

“We take it seriously,” Cassandra said. “It’s a privilege to be able to make a difference in people’s lives.”
