Dental care for refugee family in place

Kootenay Family Dental will be providing dental care to the refugee family Castlegar is expecting this spring.

One more piece to the puzzle of caring for the refugee family that is expected in Castlegar this spring has fallen in to place. Kootenay Family Dental has applied for and received approval to provide dental care for the family through the Refugee Resettlement Assistance Program.

Everything is in place so that the clinic can begin taking care of the family’s dental needs as soon as they arrive in town. The clinic plans to assess the family and then start a program of long term care and education. The next step will be follow up visits and taking care of things like restorative work that may need done. If the family needs specialized care, Kootenay Family Dental is committed to helping them access the specialists they may need.

The clinic has committed to accepting the payments that the assistance program has set forward in their fee schedule, and will not charge anything above those amounts.
