Free Dental Clinic Coming Back to Machias

Mark your calendars, the week of April 3 – 8 the Dental Clinic is returning to Machias. This is a great opportunity for anyone who doesn’t have access to regular dental care, and the program is free to all. Complete dental care is available for children — from exams to fillings to extractions. Adults can be seen too on a first come first served basis. The clinic hours are:

Monday 4/3   8:30am – 5pm

Tuesday 4/4  8:30am – 5pm

Wednesday 4/5  8:30am – 6:30pm

Thursday 4/6 CLOSED

Friday 4/7  8:30am – 5pm

Sat  4/8  8:30am – 1pm

The Dental Clinic is located at the Lee Pellon Event Center, 90 Main Street in Machias (behind Subway). This program is available in Machias thanks to the hard work of the folks at the Washington County Children’s Program and the NYU College of Dentistry.

To make an appointment for your child at the clinic or for more information, call Teresa Alley at 255-3426.  Click here to visit WCCP’s website to learn more about the clinic and other dental resources from the Washington County Children’s Program.

We also need to mention that the success of this clinic, returning year after year to help kids and families of Washington County, is a collaborative effort.  Lots of hard work and dedicated volunteers from many agencies, including Down East Community Hospital, WHCA, Child & Family Opportunities, and so many more, come together each year to make this week work so well.
