Welcome to the HENNING EMERGENCY CLINIC OF KINDNESS
The H.E.C.K. Dental Clinic in Penticton B.C. aims to provide quality “not for profit” dental care for marginalized individuals, low income families, fixed income seniors, those on Ministry Assistance, including the homeless and working poor who reside within the South Okanagan. Check our FAQ page to see if you qualify.
We will provide pro-rated, affordable dental care to individuals experiencing dental pain and/or infection to those who cannot afford treatment in a private clinic. Those covered by Ministry Dental Insurance will not be expected to pay over and above what their insurance will cover except in the case of receiving dentures.
At this time prevention services cannot be provided, such as teeth cleaning. You will need to access a local clinic for ongoing oral hygiene care at this time.
MARCH 2020 – To keep our clients safe, we are following the direction of B.C. Health regarding clinic closures during the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to collectapplications for treatment and will make contact regarding a clinic once we are able to reopen.

We are on a roll! We have 5-6 dentists volunteering on a regular basis, allowing us to hold more clinics and helping more people in need! To help improve our ability to do this, we are hoping to purchase a cavitron, for ultrasonic scaling, more hand pieces, a delivery cart, and down the road, a mobile unit. We are starting with a membership drive – $12 for a year; only $1 per month! Show your support! Our membership drive starts in March! Count me in!
We are also looking to publish a bi-annual newsletter. Get on our email list to receive it! Count me in!
