St. Joseph Dental Clinic and Mobile Dental Clinic

Bringing Smiles to our Kids in Sonoma County

St. Joseph Dental Clinics and Programs were founded in 1990 by Sister Martha Ann Fitzpatrick, the Ministry of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange and the local community in response to a county assessment by the Compassion in Action Committee of St. Joseph Health System who saw the urgent need for dental access for our community’s most vulnerable children. Dental decay is the single most common chronic childhood disease that is completely preventable.
