NYU Dentistry and Washington County Children’s Program (WCCP), a program of Sunrise Opportunities, continues to partner to bring no-cost dental care to Downeast Maine. The 11th Dental Outreach in Machias will take place April 9 – April 13, 2018 (closed Thursday, April 12) at the Lee Pellon Event Center located at 90 Main Street, behind the Subway Restaurant.

Children will receive cleanings and complete dental care. Adults will be treated on a walk-in, first-come, first-served basis. This event is open to anyone having trouble accessing dental care and is not meant to replace regular dental care from your dentist. 

Dental services are provided at no out-of-pocket cost but insurance/MaineCare will be accepted when available. The clinic is made possible by Northeast Delta Dental Foundation, Henry Schein Cares, United Way of Eastern Maine, Emera Maine, Down East Community Hospital and Harrington Family Health Center are an invaluable part of the team who implement the dental outreach.
