Mobile dental clinic comes to Ivanhoe
Last year the free clinic from the University of Southern California didn’t make its annual visit to Tulare County after funding fell through at Kaweah Delta Health Care District. For 14 years, the hospital paid for the free dental clinic through a combination of grants and hospital foundation money. But last year, no grants panned out, said John Tyndal, director of communication outreach. “We just weren’t able to put the financing together,” he said.
So he turned to the Samaritan Center, a free clinic for needy patients run by volunteer doctors, dentists and nurses in North Visalia. The non-profit stepped up this year and wrote the check for $50,000 to bring the mobile dental clinic back to Tulare County for eight days.
