One of their 5 children, Matthew was critically injured. He is in an induced coma as of now. The family will be in need of financial assistance for medical costs as well as personal assistance.

My name is Josh Smilow and I am a local general dentist who works with adults and children in my practice on Mountain Ave, Smilow Family Dentistry. I have been working in town for about two years, and have been living here with my wife and children for 9 years. As an avid sports fan, I wanted to find a way to help support our local sports teams. I want to offer the members of the Springfield Lacrosse teams the opportunity to receive a free mouth guard from my office. I value the safety of our children above all, and would love the opportunity to assist our youth with receiving custom molded sports mouth guards to be used during practices and games. It's a quick process!! Call the office, make an appointment to have the mold done. Within a week, your child will have a custom fit mouth guard. No fee at all just Dr. Smilow's way of helping the community and our sports teams.
Our season will begin for all 4th-8th grade boy's teams in 2 days (March 1st). All coaches will email using our springfieldlaxnj.com site so if your child is not registered you will not receive emails once the season begins. Past members will only receive emails about important updates like fundraisers or new lacrosse opportunities, clinics, and big news items regarding our program.
Practice fields and game fields - We are still waiting for permits for practice and game fields. The high school gets priority and youth programs get what they don't use. We will be meeting with the Rec dept. as soon as they receive the permits for the fields. We will have a field by March 1st!!
