Back again! The Tooth Mobile is coming!

The fourth dental van visit to San Juan Island, and first of 2013, will happen on Friday, Jan. 25, and Saturday, Jan. 26, at Market Place.

Fish For Teeth sponsors this local volunteer-staffed clinic to provide urgent and preventative dental care to island residents who have no discretionary income, no dental insurance and no other financial means to pay for dental services.

Applications for treatment can be downloaded at fishforteeth.com, or picked up from and dropped off at the following agencies: Health Department, 145 Rhone Street, SJI Family Resource Center, 476 Market Street, or the Mullis Center, 589 Nash Street.

Applications will be processed the week prior to the clinic by a volunteer dentist whose staff will call the applicants to make appointments. Please note that the folks at the above intake centers do none of the prioritizing or scheduling.

And don’t forget, aside from direct donations, the only fundraiser is a Fish Taco Sale! Plan your fish taco lunch for Friday, January 25, in front of Market Place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Info: fishforteeth.com or Margaret Johnson, 360-472-0123.
