Dental Center to hold grand opening Saturday (Dec 17)

Aloha friends,

We have so much to be thankful for this season!

Thanks to the Affordable Care Act and generous community supporters, Bay Clinic will soon be opening the doors to a state of the art dental facility inside the Hilo Shopping Center. Please join us on December 17th for a grand opening celebration of the brand new Hilo Family Dental Center.

This highly-anticipated new clinic will be equipped with six dental operatories, digital x-ray machines and an electronic dental record system. Like all of Bay Clinic’s eight nonprofit Family Health Centers throughout Puna, Hilo, and Ka’u, services at the Hilo Family Dental Center will be provided to all regardless of insurance status or their ability to pay.

Expansion of oral health services has been a strategic priority for Bay Clinic to help meet the needs of Hawaii Island’s growing population. The Kea’au Family Health Center has provided an affordable East Hawaii option for medical and dental care since 2003. In 2009, oral health services were expanded throughout Puna, Ka’u and Hilo with the introduction of the mobile dental van. The Hilo Family Dental Center is now the third project to address the growing oral health needs of our communities.

We hope you will join us for this holiday-inspired celebration on December 17th. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at or call 808-961-4089.


Paul Strauss
Bay Clinic CEO
