Delta Dental of Washington gives $2 million for new dental education clinic
Opens June 2016

In partnership with Seattle Colleges and Seattle Vocational Institute, and thanks to a generous $2 million donation from Delta Dental of Washington,  Neighborcare Health is opening a new dental clinic in the Pacific Tower on Beacon Hill this June. The clinic will serve 6,000 patients each year providing multiple dental services—cleanings, X-rays, fillings, specialty services such as crowns, and more—to low-income and uninsured patients. The clinic will also serve to train future dental hygienists and dental assistants. It’s thought to be the first program of its kind in the country.

Infants through adults will be welcome as patients at the clinic, whether or not they are current Neighborcare Health medical patients. In May, staff will begin scheduling appointments for June, when the clinic opens.
