Dentists Lorin Rice and Reed Hall are donating 100 percent of the day’s procedures to the Friends of Creston, a nonprofit dental clinic in Southeast Portland that treats Portland Public schoolchildren without dental care. The organization served kids for 50 years, then closed after funding dried up. It reopened last September with new fundraising, outreach and a renovated clinic.

Three hygienists, two dental assistants and two front desk workers at Laurelwood Dental will be volunteering their time Oct. 14.
