Asher CHC Dental


Our Services and locations


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.
