Senior Smiles Program.

With a helping hand and support from Washington Dental Service we provide dental care and oral health instruction to residents in long term or skilled nursing homes. We currently serve the Yakima, Kittitas, and lower valley.

Senior Care Mission

To better care for patients by providing on site medical services in local care facilities.

The Need

This program provides access to dental services for residents that have limited transportation or mobility restrictions.

We construct a fully functional dental clinic within the nursing home to offer residents basic dental exams, cleanings, extractions and restorations.
