Virginia Garcia offers comprehensive dental care to children, both insured and uninsured, with the goal of establishing a dental home for all children seen in our medical clinic.
Virginia Garcia operates one of the only dental clinics in Washington and Yamhill counties targeting low-income and uninsured patients-especially children. Tooth decay is the most common childhood disease in the United States, affecting five times more children than those with asthma, and disproportionately affecting low-income children and families. 1 in 3 of Oregon's school children have untreated tooth decay, and every day, nearly 1 in 20 are in need of urgent care due to pain or infection.
Our goal is to establish a dental health care home for all children seen in our medical clinics, to provide dental health education to children and families through outreach services and to improve the oral and overall health of our community.
Tooth decay is preventable & treatable, but only if people have access to affordable dental services. Therefore, Virginia Garcia will provide 6,000 children this year with the treatment, education and supplies they need to maintain their oral health.
