Our Services

Unity Care NW provides dental care for children and adults. Our approach to care is based on prevention.

Our care teams include dentists, hygienists, and dental assistants who offer a broad range of dental services.

Emergency Dental Care

Unity Care NW is currently offering emergency dental care to anyone living in Whatcom County. If you are in pain or have swelling, call (360) 676-6177 for more information.

Adult Dental Care Overview

Adult dental care is one of the most needed but least available services in Whatcom County. An estimated 45,000 Whatcom County residents lack access to dental care. Unity Care NW has expanded its dental facilities in recent years, but we are still only able to meet a small portion of the need. We are committed to continuing to work with the community to expand services and access to adult dental care. In the meantime, we prioritize dental care for the following groups:

  • Pregnant women
  • Parents of our pediatric patients
  • Our established pediatric dental patients once they reach adulthood
  • People living with HIV
  • Developmentally disabled patients
  • Adults with dental emergencies
  • Unity Care NW medical patients with certain health conditions who are referred by their provider
