The Rotary Club of Reedsport, together with Medical Teams International, sponsors free dental care in the Lower Umpqua area. The Northwest Medical Team is schedule to bring its mobile dental van to Reedsport on February 22 & 23 and again on May 24 & 25, 2013. Dr. Gerhard Goorhuis and his assistant provide the dental care for children and adults in need.
Applications to receive dental care are available through the Family Resource Center, who provides the screening to determine eligibility. Persons seeking dental care must meet the following criteria: no insurance, must live in the Reedsport School District area, and must meet the requirements as stated in the federal poverty guidelines. Both children and adults qualify for the service. Contact the Family Resource Center at 541-271-9700 to learn more about applying for the free dental care. The program is limited in the number of persons that can be treated over the two-day period, so apply soon.
The Mobile Dental Van is supported through tax deductible donations and grants (when available). If you are interested in financially supporting this very worth while cause and much needed service, send your donation to Reedsport Rotary Foundation at PO Box 91, Reedsport, OR, 97467.
The Rotary Club of Reedsport wishes to extend its appreciation and thanks to the Dr. Goorhuis, the Family Resource Center, and Medical Teams International for providing this opportunity to the residents of Reedsport.
