Dental services

Dental care gets cut from the budget when money gets tight . . . and money's tighter than ever for many people in the Seattle area.

The state government cut adult dental care programs last year. That means someone who can't afford insurance can't take care of cavities, gum disease or other dental issues.

Confidence and self-esteem drop significantly with dental problems.

Men and women struggling to climb out of poverty have trouble applying for jobs — or even talking to people — when they have a visible cavity, are missing a tooth or even just have bad breath.


Quality dental care free of charge

Our dental clinic provides free dental care to men, women and children staying in our shelters. Anyone else who can't afford dental care is welcome as well.

We're giving men and women hope so they can be:

  • proud of their smile
  • confident going into work or job interviews
  • healthy

Dental care truly can change lives.


The services we provide

Our narcotic-free clinic in downtown Seattle provides:

  • Preventative care
  • Fillings
  • Cleanings
  • Emergency care
  • Oral surgery
  • X-Rays
  • Dentures

But our downtown clinic can't meet the skyrocketing needs.

We're building partnerships with a clinic in Shoreline and looking for a partner in the South King County in 2013.
