Free Dental Clinic
We are the Abbotsford FoodBank's Free Dental Clinic. That's right, basic dental coverage is available and FREE for people in our community who cannot afford it and have little or no coverage.
The free clinic was a vision of a local dentist who served overseas and wished to continue this charity at home. Since then, a team of some very dedicated dentists and Hygienists have put in countless volunteer hours to make this vision a reality. The clinic has been up and running since the summer of 2007 in the upstairs portion of the Abbotsford Food Bank. It operates on 100% volunteer hours of dentists, hygienists and certified dental assistants. We have one paid administrator who works one day a week.
What we do
The Abbotsford Free Dental Clinic helps patients with low income and little or no dental coverage. It is serviced by local dentists, Certified Dental Assistants, and Hygienists who volunteer their time and services.
To provide free Dental care for those unable to provide it themselves. We believe charity starts at home, and our hope is to affect the lives of both the patient's and volunteers in a positive way.
