Giving more than 1,100 people a reason to smile each year

Healthy teeth and a beautiful smile restore self-confidence and open doors for employment and other opportunities. We provide basic dentistry and vital restorative care for those in greatest need.

Dental care gets cut from the budget when money gets tight . . . and money's tighter than ever for many people in the Seattle area. That means someone who can't afford insurance can't take care of cavities, gum disease, or other dental issues.

Confidence and self-esteem drop significantly with dental problems.

Men and women struggling to climb out of poverty have trouble applying for jobs — or even talking to people — when they have a visible cavity, are missing a tooth, or even just have bad breath.

Quality dental care free of charge

Our dental clinic provides free dental care to men and women staying in our shelters. Anyone else who can't afford dental care is welcome as well.

We're giving men and women hope so they can be:

  • proud of their smile
  • confident going into work or job interviews
  • healthy

Dental care truly can change lives.
