Community Clinic Expands Dental Services
The Snake River Community Clinic in Lewiston is opening a new dental operating space to expand its services in the Lewis Clark Valley.
The clinic provides free medical, dental and behavioral health care for uninsured and under-insured people in the region.
The expansion is funded by a $35,000 donation from Delta Dental of Idaho.
It will provide panoramic digital imaging, and a sterilization station.
The new space will also allow dental providers to do routine checkup and cleanings, as well as X-rays, consults for crowns and denture referrals.
The clinic operates three days a week for most of the year.
