Creston Children's Dental Clinic is a nonprofit committed to children's dental health. Our mission is to provide a dental home where underserved children receive quality dental care and education at no cost. Every patient is treated by a volunteer dental provider who provides comprehensive preventive and restorative dental care.
We are open Tuesdays through Fridays, 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM.
To learn more about becoming a patient, please see our Services page.
Since 2010, each year the clinic has:
Served more than 500 children
Performed more than 6,000 dental procedures
Provided more than $400,000 in free dental treatment
Children with oral disease experience terrible pain, have trouble eating and sleeping, have a higher incidence of absenteeism related to dental issues, and are less successful in school. Low income children in Oregon are disproportionately affected, yet there are very few safety nets to help treat and prevent oral disease for families who cannot afford care. And the worst part of all this is that dental decay is 100 percent preventable.
