It is with deep regret that the Fish for Teeth Board has canceled the Oct. 4-6 free dental clinics in the San Juans. Due to last-minute cancellations, the board is unable to staff the van with dental professionals. This is the first time such cancellations have occurred, and we are very sorry. The next clinic will be on Jan. 10-12. The board welcomes any questions at fishforteeth@rockisland.com.

Fish tacos will still be sold on Friday, Oct. 5, outside the San Juan Community Theatre. All the revenue from these sales supports bringing the mobile dental van to the islands.

The Fish for Teeth board, comprised of fishermen and dental professionals, sponsors a mobile clinic every January, May and October in the San Juans. Fish for Teeth receives no federal funding and relies solely on tax-deductible donations. For more information, visit www.fishforteeth.com.
