Dentist Astarte (left) and dental assistant Lara Kahl are ready to accept some of their first patients at the Salvation Army’s new free dental clinic in Cranbrook. The clinic opened earlier this month and is accepting patients who can’t afford to see a dentist. Two more volunteer dentists are soon to join the clinic: Dr. Matthew Choi will soon offer appointments on Saturdays, and Dr. Imre Rokus will join later this year to expand the clinic’s services to include restorative work. People who think they might benefit from the clinic’s services can call the Salvation Army at 250-426-3612.
