Dental Van

MTI dental vanOICF partners with Medical Teams International (MTI) to bring their state of the art van to Orcas four times each year. Dental van dates for 2017 are:

  • March 31/April 1, 2017
  • May 5/6, 2017
  • October 6/7, 2017
  • November 3/4, 2017

This service is fulfilling a big need for Islanders. Starting in 2012 more we have helped more than 400 patients who would have otherwise gone without dental care.

This is all possible thanks to the remarkable contributions of so many:

  • the Island dentists and assistants who contribute their skills
  • the volunteers who schedule, greet, and monitor the patients
  • the generous community members who provide lunches and housing
  • Medical Teams International and their amazing van
  • the Community Church for the gracious use of their facility and
  • the donors who supply the funding to make it all possible

Donations are always welcome to keep this service current.
