VNHS East Side Dental Clinic

The VNHS EastSide Dental Clinic is a not for profit clinic. Our clinic is staffed by volunteers and offers emergency pain relief treatments only for people with an acute dental condition which presents a notorious threat to his/her dentition and requires immediate attention.

Our mision

The VNHS EastSide Dental Clinic is committed to provide an optimum emergency dental care and bring back a healthy and immediate pain relief to our patients. 

Successes and Challenges

Increasing Demand

The clinic is well established within the DTES community and demand for our services increases each year. Waiting times often exceed one and a half hours and this is unacceptable to many people. We are constantly looking for new volunteers to fulfill and increase our hours of operations. . 

DTES Members Making Health A Priority

It is our office policy to offer health care and wellness promotion in innovative and culturally appropriate ways that will attract, engage individuals to improve their personal health and well-being.
