Free Dental Care for Vulnerable Populations Coming to South King County

By MultiCare Health System

MultiCare is partnering with Medical Teams International to offer free dental services in South King County for individuals on Medicaid, people experiencing homelessness, or those that are uninsured.

These services were made possible due to a grant from HealthierHere, a King County non-profit focused on health care, which provides funds for this program through the end of November 2020.

The City of Auburn and Navos are also providing partnerships and support for this initiative.

Tooth fillings and extractions will be available for underserved adults who live in Auburn, Puyallup or Tacoma on a first-come, first-served basis through Medical Teams International’s mobile dental clinic. There will be limited services for children. No insurance, ID, or fees are required for eligible participants.

COVID-19 precautions will be in place and will include a screening questionnaire, temperature checks, and only allowing one patient in the van at a time for social distancing (no guests or family members will be permitted in the mobile clinic).

Current dates and locations for these free services are:

Friday, Aug. 14 and Saturday, Aug. 15

Hours: 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. each day
