Free Dental Care Coming Soon

Posted: Updated:
WHITEFISH -

The Community Health Needs Assessment for Flathead county found preventive dental care as one of the top five needs in the Valley. Now we are beginning to see some solutions.

Starting January 13, Shepherd's Hand Clinic in Whitefish will offer free dental care to people who are at or below 200% of the federal poverty level.

North Valley Hospital helped put together the Needs Assessment and gave the clinic $5,000 to get off the ground.

"This is one of the first responses to that Community Health Needs Assessment. There were five things that came out of it, one of which was dental care," said Catherine Todd, a spokeswoman for North Valley Hospital.

Run of the mill check-ups will have to wait, the clinic will only be able to see those with tooth pain at first.

Shepherd's Hand is looking for help and donations before they start seeing patients.
