Dental Providers provide dental care during clinic hours. With the exception of dental assistants, all providers must be licensed and have malpractice insurance.*
*Note: For licensed volunteers who do not have malpractice insurance, it is available free of charge through Western Washington Area Health Education Center (AHEC). PSCC will assist our volunteer providers in obtaining this insurance. If you are retired and your license has not lapsed, AHEC will also pay for your license renewal fee.
Dental Assistants at PSCC provide assistance to the Dental Director and Volunteer Dentists, oversee and train volunteer dental assistants, ensure the safe use of equipment, and assist with front office duties as needed, including patient scheduling. Dental Assistants must be a graduate of a licensed dental assistant program and registered dental assistant.
