Return to Service & Outreach

Dental Van

All Saints co-sponsors with Medical Teams International (MTI), a dental clinic on the 1st Thursday of the month.  A mobile van, fully equipped for dental work and staffed by a volunteer dentist, hygienist and assistants, provides urgent care for people who don’t have the ability to pay. This Outreach Ministry treats 12 to 15 ailing patients at each clinic, about 400 people per year.

Deacon Kathleen Borsch arranges with MTI for the van, answers inquiries from the public, and schedules patient appointments.  All Saints maintain the legally required files and volunteers direct the flow of patients. Jen Schafer volunteers her professional expertise as dental assistant.  Jen and Dr. Warren Schafer founded this ministry at All Saints as an extension of their long-time association with MTI, volunteering throughout the world.  If interested in helping with record keeping and with reception of patients, please contact Deacon Kathleen.  To be placed on the patient waiting list, please call the Church Office at 503-777-3829.
