West Kootenay Community TEETH Clinic Society

We believe all people deserve access to dental care, and We endeavor to make dental care more affordable.

The TEETH Clinic in Nelson is a not-for-profit clinic, which offers high quality dental care for West Kootenay Boundary low-income community members including children, their families and seniors.

All community members with a net family income of less than $42,000 and 3-months’ residency in the West Kootenay Boundary are eligible for dental services at the clinic.

For more information including registration forms, dental fee schedules and contact information, visit Community First Health Co-op.
