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.

Children’s Dental Care

Dental care is a necessary part of a child’s overall health. All children should begin seeing a dentist by their first birthday or when their first tooth appears. To make an appointment for your child, call 360-676-6177.

Our dental services for children include:

  • Exams
  • Cleanings
  • X-rays
  • Sealants
  • Fluoride applications
  • Oral hygiene instruction
