Olympia Union Gospel Mission Dental Clinic
Since 2003, the Olympia Union Gospel Mission No-Fee Dental Clinic has been staffed by volunteer dental professionals. Now serving over 2,000 patients a year, the clinic provides emergency services to Thurston County residents living at or below 200% of the federal poverty level who have no dental insurance or alternate means to pay for care.
February 2016 The Mission opened their new facility. It is a state-of-the-art dental facility located downtown Olympia. Friday, April 15th, Amanda and Dr. Bode volunteered their first day at the new clinic.
Sonya, Amanda, Alyssa, and Dr. Bode have volunteered at the Mission since 2007. Judy and Dr. Russell have volunteered at the Mission since Dr. Russell graduated from dental school and moved to Olympia in 2005. Judy volunteered with Dr. Russell, Sr., prior to that and helped Linda Barrett, the Clinic Director, with the initial set-up of the clinic.
Every year Dr. Russell participates in the Annual OUGM Concert to raise money for the Dental Clinic.
The Free Dental Clinic is a wonderful service for our community. Thank you to all the volunteers and donors that keep the mission going strong. Thank you to Linda Barrett for your leadership for keeping the clinic running day after day, year after year.
