Dental services are offered at the YNHS 8th St. Campus in Yakima, YNHS Sunnyside and at Neighborhood Connections. The YNHS team of dentists, hygienists and assistants provides preventive and restorative care including exams, digital x-rays, cleaning, fillings, crowns, extractions, and assistance with dentures, emergent care and more. An electronic patient record is shared by both medical and dental providers to provide the most comprehensive care possible.
Dental care for children should begin even before they are born. This starts with a mother’s good oral health during pregnancy. After a baby is born, Yakima Neighborhood Health Services wants children to see the dentist as soon as they have a sign of a first tooth. Dentists at YNHS even visit children during their medical exams to make it convenient for the family.
