Kemple Memorial Children’s Dental Clinic

Kemple Memorial Children’s Dental Clinic has served the children and young adults of Central Oregon for more than 20 years. For the past 4 years, they have provided preventative services in both non-traditional settings (e.g., schools, community service venues, fairs, etc.) through their Screen and Seal (S&S) Programs as well as their traditional clinic facility. Screening an average of 6,000 children each year, they have identified 25% of these children who have near term or urgent dental needs (1500 children each year in need of treatment) thus insuring timely and high quality response to their needs. In this 5th year of the S&S Program, Kemple Clinic is proud to once again deliver these services to even more schools and community venues, with the help of key funding from the Central Oregon Health Council. In strong alignment with the goals of the Regional Health Improvement Plan goals, Kemple continues to deliver comprehensive dental programs and services that “keep children cavity free”.
