Clearwater's new community dental clinic, which began treating patients Sept. 20 at 1008 Woodlawn St., was the topic of conversation at a recent meeting of the Belleair Rotary Club.

Guest speaker Bruce Livingston of the Dunedin North Rotary Club talked about how area Rotary clubs provided funds for a district grant in an effort to assist other community partners, foundations and individuals in making this clinic a reality.

The clinic's creation was based on a survey of the area's largest social service needs, with No. 1 being access to dental care. The Salvation Army - Clearwater Citadel Corps, the Clearwater Free Clinic and UPARC collaborated on the project to provide low-cost access to dental care for residents of northern Pinellas County.

The city of Clearwater provided the location, which is part of a police substation that was remodeled by D-Mar Construction.

Drs. Michael and Pamela Adams and St. Petersburg College donated dental chairs, and dental hygiene students from the college will help provide services on a rotation basis.

Monetary donations as well as new dental supplies such as toothbrushes, toothpaste and floss are still being collected by area Rotary clubs. Volunteer dentists, dental hygienists and individuals with clerical skills are also needed. Contact the clinic at (727) 216-6155 or email Cheryl@communitydentalclinic.net.
