Imagine if you were in excruciating dental pain and had no insurance or funds to pay for treatment. You would hope and pray for relief and a solution. Care Point Clinic is celebrating by serving its 100th patient with free dental care.
This is why Medical Teams International operates its Care & Connect program throughout the Pacific Northwest, reaching people who otherwise would have no dental treatment options – and identifying some of the more serious health issues associated with dental infection.
WHAT: Medical Teams and Care Point Clinic are together offering free emergency dental services to community members who otherwise would not be able to access care. All appointments are booked beforehand. Interpretive services will be available on-site.
WHEN: Friday, November 3, 2023 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
WHERE: Care Point Clinic
36017 SE Fish Hatchery Road
Fall City, WA 98024
WHY: Through its innovative Care & Connect program, Medical Teams provides free emergency dental care, medical screenings, and other services to help patients identify health concerns and connect with primary care.
Their goal is to reduce the barriers to care and go where we are needed most. We strive to improve access to care for communities of color, immigrant and refugee populations, individuals who are experiencing homelessness, as well as those who are uninsured or underinsured, undocumented, or otherwise experiencing barriers to care.
