If you are currently picking up your prescriptions in person at the Clinic, please call 541-763-2725 so we can update you 

as to the NEW PROCESS we have in place.

New Phone System

Remember:   In case of Emergency,   Phone 9-1-1

We have transitioned to a new phone system. If you have any problem getting through on our normal phone number: 541-763-2725, please use this temporary backup phone number, 458-256-0530, and be sure to tell us about the problem you encountered (so we can find any glitches to fix them!)

** Be advised: The new phone system will more directly route your call to make it faster to reach your party. ** 

While the clinic is open: select either Dental or Medical, then choose the Front Desk by pressing either 1 or 8, or any of the various options for other medical departments.

We realize this short 'up-front menu' is new, but it will speed your call by helping to eliminate the bottleneck created when all calls go straight to the front desk. 

We sincerely appreciate your patience as we implement this new system, and if you have any issues with connecting or otherwise, please use the temporary backup number: 

458-256-0530, and report to us exactly what the problem was. 

We want to provide you with the very best care possible... and thank you for your assistance!

Three Locations To Serve You


Fossil Clinic: Monday through Friday

Spray Clinic: Wednesday & Friday

Mitchell School Based Health Center: Tuesday & Thursday



 Full dental Services (X-ray, examinations, restorations, crowns, dentures, oral hygiene) are available at the Fossil and Mitchell clinics.  

 Asher Dental Services (ADS) contracts with dentists to provide our part-time dental services.  No dentists reside in Wheeler County so all come in from out of the area: Portland and Redmond.  

ADS also employs a part-time hygienist, that travels here from Sisters.  

As all of these out-of-area staff have other commitments, the days of operation vary from site to site.  Generally, services are available in Fossil weekly and in Mitchell twice a month.  

Please call for an appointment at 541-763-2725.
