NO-FEE Dental Clinic
It’s hard to imagine living with the pain of an abscessed tooth for a month or more because you can’t afford a trip to the dentist. And even more unlikely to imagine how a trip to the dentist might lead to someone’s salvation. But when a dentist eliminates dental pain, hope and confidence return, creating an open door for the gospel message.
The clinic is funded by generous donations from individuals, churches and companies, and through corporate and foundation grants; however, the needs are ongoing, so please consider becoming a regular donor to the Mission and keep no-fee care coming for those who would otherwise go without.
Since 2003, the Olympia Union Gospel Mission No-Fee Dental Clinic has been staffed by volunteer dental professionals. Now serving over 1,800 patients a year, the clinic provides emergency services to Thurston County residents living at or below 200% of the federal poverty level who have no dental insurance or alternate means to pay for care.
The Dental Clinic has moved to the following address:
309 Washington St. NE, Olympia
To make an appointment call:
M – F 8 a.m. – 3 p.m.
309 Washington St NE, Olympia

HELPING DIABETICS LIVE A HEALTHY LIFE
The Dental Clinic has started a new program called Local Impact Network (LIN). The program is designed to help diabetic patients with no dental insurance or means to pay for care. Through research, we know that poor oral health is a contributor to diabetes. The LIN project is designed to help improve the oral health of the patient resulting in lowering A1-c and glucose levels.
Terry was one of the first patients participating in the LIN project. As a diabetic, her teeth were degrading and she contacted the No-Fee Dental Clinic for help. She was so thankful to participate in this new program and felt that “someone cared.”
Your gift to the No-Fee Dental Clinic helps meet the dental needs of individuals in our community that have no access to the urgent care they need. Thank you!
If you are a currently licensed dentist, hygienist, or dental assistant, please call the clinic for more information – contact Shelley Case at (360) 943-6400.

To help with any of these needs, contact Shelley Case at (360) 943-6400.
