A Lincoln Park dentist is helping give a carjacking victim a new smile.

Dr. Jack Manikowski decided to help 18-year-old Edwin Rodriguez after seeing a story about him on NBC 5.

The story detailed how Rodriguez got carjacked early Wednesday morning outside the Wit Hotel.  He suffered several injuries after being dragged from the car for about a block. 

Dr. Manikowski watched the story and saw Rodriguez's bruises and three broken teeth.  He contacted NBC 5 and the station let the teen in on the good news today-- the generous dentist will be fixing his teeth free of charge! I love to hear about Chicagoans helping Chicagoans!

Check out the update from NBC 5:
