Dental clinic returns in Sandy, offering free services posted on 10/01/2019

Tami Beaty had seen the impact that dental clinics in large cities could make after she and her husband were part of some.

So last year they started one in Sandy, offering free dental work on a first-come, first serve basis. And the clinic will return this year, scheduled for 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6 at the Sandy Seventh-Day Adventist Church, 18575 SE Langensand Road.

“Our church has just really been a strong force, trying to reach people in our community with their health needs,” said Beaty, noting that they have taken part in the past with Compassion Sandy, a one-day health clinic.

The dental clinic’s offerings will include exams, digital dental x-rays, extractions, fillings, cleanings and more, although no services are guaranteed.

Beaty expects to have eight dentists, five dental hygienists and a “good number” of dental assistants on hand in the hopes to serve more than 100 people.

There are no requirements for patients, and Beaty noted that last year she saw people come from Albany and Vancouver, Wash. as part of the 86 people who came to the clinic.

“For our first year, I thought that was pretty good,” she said.

Beaty encourages people who want to take advantage of the services to get there early, noting that she has seen people line up for clinics as early as 4 a.m. to be sure and get a spot, adding that she feels for the people who need to do so.

“It hurts your heart to see people go to these means to get care,” Beaty said. “It’s a good thing we can help them.”

Next year, Beaty hopes to add the opportunity for people to get crowns.

She also noted that the church has other health-related offerings, including “Diabetes Undone” and a depression and anxiety seminar run by her husband.

“We’re just really excited to be helping,” Beaty said.
