The Portland Community Clinic is a not-for-profit community clinic for all residents within the boundaries of the Downtown Eastside, that provides quality general dentistry at a reduced fee or accepts assignment of benefits of all insurance plans. Our clinic is a UBC teaching facility from September to June and dental treatment may be observed or delivered by senior dental students under the supervision of our on-staff dentists.

COVID -19 update

Our Clinic provides routine care and dental hygiene for healthy people at low risk for COVID-19. Those at high risk for severe COVID-19 (seniors and those with medical conditions) should consider delaying care.

If you had a previously scheduled appointment please await a call from the clinic. If you are in need of dental treatment but are not in discomfort, contact us in August/September for further updates.

IF you have a dental emergency and are experiencing severe uncontrolled bleeding, swelling or pain, contact us with your full name, phone number, date of birth, BC Services Card number (PHN) and a full description of your dental concern. An on-call dentist will contact you to discuss your matter in more detail.

There will no longer be any walk-in emergency care – all visits must be arranged and screened prior to attending the clinic. We are only admitting people with scheduled appointments.

If you have scheduled an appointment

Please read and complete a COVID-19 Patient Pre-Screening Form one day prior to your visit or as directed by dental staff.
