Seattle Center Event Demonstrates Dental Access Needs in Our Community – Oral Health Watch

The Seattle/King County Clinic with Remote Area Medical held at Seattle Center’s KeyArena shows the tremendous need for dental care in our community.  More than 1,700 patients received dental services at this four-day event.  More than 400 dental professionals and students volunteered their time, including dentists, oral surgeons, dental hygienists, and dental assistants.
