Panama​ ​City​ ​Smiles​ ​will​ ​guarantee​ ​care​ ​to​ ​the​ ​first​ ​100​ ​patients.​ ​Registration​ ​starts​ ​at 6:30​ ​a.m.​ ​and​ ​ends​ ​at​ ​9​ ​a.m.​ ​(or​ ​when​ ​they​ ​have​ ​200​ ​registrants),​ ​and​ ​the​ ​team​ ​will begin​ ​seeing​ ​patients​ ​at​ ​7​ ​a.m.​ ​Panama​ ​City​ ​Smiles’​ ​dentists,​ ​Dr.​ ​Patel​ ​and​ ​Dr.​ ​Trae Pappas,​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as​ ​Drs.​ ​Olivier​ ​Broutin,​ ​Gary​ ​Nanavati,​ ​and​ ​Eric​ ​Claussen​ ​(an​ ​oral surgeon).

“Giving​ ​back​ ​is​ ​the​ ​way​ ​we​ ​show​ ​appreciation​ ​to​ ​our​ ​community,”​ ​Dr.​ ​Patel​ ​said.​ ​“We would​ ​like​ ​to​ ​thank​ ​all​ ​of​ ​our​ ​wonderful​ ​patients​ ​and​ ​team​ ​for​ ​making​ ​this​ ​day​ ​possible every​ ​year.”
