Dental clinic offered to those in need
The Pierce County Public Health Department tried multiple solutions over the years in finding quality dental care for those who couldn't afford it.
"We did many things over the years, but for low income people, finding dental care was tough," said Lisa Raethke, a nurse with the department.
Dentists volunteered their time to place sealants around the county to grade students, but that wasn't enough.
"We continued to see the need being out there," she said.
