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.
