Free Dental and Medical Clinic
The Santa Ynez Tribal Health Clinic will team up once again with the Army Reserves and National Guard to provide limited dental and medical services free of charge on May 6-17 for anyone unable to access basic health care due to a lack of insurance.
When: Saturday, May 11, 2013, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Where: Santa Ynez Tribal Health Clinic, 90 Via Juana Lane, Santa Ynez, CA
Age limit: All ages
Categories: Community Events
Spaces are limited and by appointment only. Appointments are available on weekdays during the offer from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Saturday, May 11, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The free services that will be provided by the Army Reserves and National Guard include:
• Women’s health exams • General Physicals
• Dental exams/x-rays • Fillings
• Extractions • Teeth cleanings
For more information and to make an appointment for any of these services, contact the Tribal Health Clinic at (805) 688-7070. Because these sessions are targeted toward patients who need free services, patients with insurance should make an appointment with the regular clinic.
The Army Reserves and National Guard will provide its own certified medical and dental staff for these services as part of a collaboration between Walking Shield, Inc., and the Department of Defense. The program brings military reserve units to reservations to assist with healthcare and provide services for the underserved in the United States. The Clinic staff will provide support as needed.
The Santa Ynez Tribal Health Clinic is located on the reservation of the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians. The staff specializes in the highest standards of quality health care through modern medicine and cultural tradition. The clinic’s comprehensive medical, dental and behavioral health services are available to all members of the community, not only for Native Americans. The facility provides sliding fees based on income, low income programs, and accepts Medicare, Medi-Cal, and most major insurance plans.
