The Henning Emergency Clinic of Kindness (H.E.C.K) at 101-431 Winnipeg St., Penticton, is a free dental clinic open two days each week.
They offer free dental treatments every Monday and Wednesday between the hours of 8.30 a.m. and 4.30 p.m.
Patients must be suffering with dental pain or infection, not currently be seeing a dentist, and be unable to afford dental care.
It’s recommended that you make an appointment, but they also operate as a walk-in dentistry clinic too.
The front door to the dental clinic is a little tricky to find. You need to go via Wade Ave, then down the alley.
The clinic is always on the lookout for donations as it costs around $1000 per day to operate.
