Oral Health Matters!
Every Tuesday, when school is in session, students from Pacific University School of Dental Hygiene Studies come to the Martha H. Terrell Center and provide cleanings at minimal cost to individuals who do not have dental insurance. Providence-sponsored Promotores de Salud manage the scheduling and receptionist services.

“I usually never have Sundays off from work. But I did last Sunday and finally could attend Mass. That is where I heard about the dental clinic. I haven’t been to the dentist in 8 years. My jaw clenches when I get nervous and I’ve wanted to go to the dentist for a long time, but I don’t have insurance. I feel like God has helped make this happen.”
