Mobile dental van is back
June 15, 2012 · 3:31 PM
The Mobile Dental Clinic from Medical Teams International will be returning to Orcas on June 29 and 30.
The clinic will provide free care to qualifying community members. Applications are available online at www.oicf.us or can be picked up at the food bank, Orcas Family Connections or the county health office at the Orcas Senior Center.
Applications will be reviewed and prioritized based on severity of dental needs and pain. Completed applications can be dropped off in the dental box outside the public library. If you have questions regarding the application, contact Barbara Ehrmantraut at 376-3395.
This is the second of four clinics scheduled for 2012 funded through the Orcas Island Community Foundation. All three island dentists and staffs are volunteering to provide care and the Orcas Lions, Orcas Angels and Odd Fellows are providing check in support.
The Orcas Community Church is hosting the van and housing for the van drivers has been contributed by the Gudgell family. Breakfast snacks and lunch for the volunteers are needed on both days; if you are interested in contributing, contact the Orcas Island Community Foundation at 376-6423.
