The Mobile Dental Clinic from Medical Teams International will be returning to Orcas on April 12 and 13.
The clinic will provide care to qualifying community members. During the next two dental clinics (April and June), there will be an opportunity for single unit crown procedures and the seating of those crowns. Patients will be charged for the lab fees. The cost to the patient will be under $200 per crown. All other services will be free of charge.
Applications are available online at www.oicf.us or can be picked up at the food bank, the public library, Orcas Family Connections or the county health office at the senior center. Applications will be reviewed and prioritized based on dental needs and pain. Completed applications can be dropped off in the Dental Box outside the library. Call Barbara Ehrmantraut at 376-3395 with questions.
