Dental clinic to return to Machias

MACHIAS — Anyone having trouble accessing dental care is invited to the 12th annual Dental Outreach Clinic in Machias the week of April 8 at the Lee Pellon Event Center, 90 Main St., Machias.

This event, which is not meant to replace regular dental care, is open April 8-13 but closed on April 11.

Children will receive cleanings and complete dental care. Several area schools will bus children to the Lee Pellon Center throughout the week. Families of children under 12 who are not attending with their school can call 255-3426 to make an appointment.

Adults are treated on a first-come, first-served basis. Appointments for adults are not available and it is suggested that those seeking care come early in the week.

Dental services are provided at no out-of-pocket cost but insurance/MaineCare will be accepted when available.

The clinic is sponsored by the New York University Dental Program and the Washington County Children’s Program, a part of Sunrise Opportunities.
