Moses Lake Hosts Free Dental Clinic

During the weekend of June 23–25, 2017, Moses Lake was the place to be if you were having dental problems. The Moses Lake Church sponsored a free community dental clinic on Friday and Sunday in the Crestview Christian School gymnasium with the help of Randy Meyer's Caring Hands International mobile dental clinic.

More than 100 people came to the clinic for dental care. Many had more than one filling and/or more than one extraction. While folks were waiting for dental work, there were dental hygienists for cleaning teeth, barber/cosmetologists for haircuts, massage therapists for back rubs and lifestyle coaches for coaching. An additional 22 people came just for these services.

Ten dentists and one oral surgeon came for one or two days, depending on their schedule. Some drove two hours each way to get here. A portable X-ray department was supervised by one dentist. A sterilization section and 12 dental assistants made up the actual dental clinic.

Other helpers worked in the parking area, registration, crowd control, kitchen help and child care. About 300 free sack lunches were handed out. Eighty-five volunteers made the project run very smoothly.

Many people expressed their appreciation for the care they received. Twelve requests for nutrition classes, four for Bible studies, two for stop-smoking class and one for depression recovery were received.

Everyone was blessed, including the volunteers. From conception to completion, many miracles marked the execution of this event. God was here. We are looking forward to doing it again.
