Georgia Officer Buys Toothpaste for Homeless Man

Every once in awhile Kiefer Family Dental likes to post “feel-good” stories that still focus on dental health and dental care. Here is a great story out of Georgia, where a police officer in Duluth, a city northeast of Atlanta, bought a toothbrush and toothpaste for a homeless man who told the officer he was living out of his car and couldn’t afford the essentials. The police department wrote in a Facebook post that they posted earlier in the week that this story was posted.

The Duluth Police Department said Officer Cavorsi bought the items with his own money after the man explained he had been forced to brush with baking soda. The incredible moment was caught on another officer’s body camera.

“These police officers are real heros,” another commented. “Why don’t people like these officers get nominated for things like Times Person of the Year or other awards. They should be rewarded, awarded and applauded for these selfless and caring acts.”

“I believe Officer Cavorsi and the Duluth Police Department should be held up as a model of what policing in America should be,” a third person commented.

Even though this may not be one the biggest stories in the news, the Duluth officers showed empathy for many individuals they came across everyday, and this is just one of the stories the department wrote. “Great job, Officer Cavorsi!”
