Mobile dental clinic

The Medical Teams International Mobile Dental clinic visited Orcas for eight days in 2012. Patient care was given by all three local dentists and their staffs, and Dr. Brar from Anacortes. They provided free oral healthcare to more than 130 neighbors.

Thanks to a contribution in memory of Fritz Kraetzer and donations from other community members, the Orcas Island Community Foundation is working with Rita Bailey and Barbara Ehrmantraut to provide four Dental Clinics in 2013, dates yet to be determined.

Applications are available at the library, the food bank, Orcas Family Connections, and the Senior Center. Applications can be dropped off in the dental box by the front door of the library.
