Free Dental Care Offered

dentist officeEUGENE, Ore — Magnuson Dental and the Lane County Dental Society are teaming up to offer free dental services.  Those selected first receive a screening, which includes X-rays, a cleaning along with a consultation.  If additional dental work is required, an appointment will be scheduled at one of four upcoming dental clinics.

The care is provided for low-income, uninsured Lane County residents who are not on the Oregon Health Plan.  “So we are just trying to get them jump-started. They need urgent dental care, cleanings. We are just trying to get them so they can get a job, retain a job or just feel better about themselves,” says Debbie Magnuson who helps organize the free dental care clinic.

The clinic is starting its eighth year.  To date,  a team of about 9 doctors has provided $750,000 dollars worth of dental care.
