The Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe this week announced the opening of a family dental clinic. Although an open house week began on Monday and will continue through Friday, the ribbon cutting ceremony is set for noon on Wednesday.
The clinic will serve all tribal citizens of all ages and of any Federally-recognized tribe, according to a release from the tribe.
Tribal Chairman Cedric Cromwell will be joined at the grand opening by Indian Health Service/Mashpee Wampanoag Health Service Unit members Dr. Benjamin Warren and Certified Dental Assistant Katie Bennett, Cheryl Frye-Cromwell, Tribal Council Health Liaison and Rita Gonsalves, Health Systems Administrator.
The clinic is at 483 Great Neck Road South in Mashpee and will be open for appointments Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
"This clinic will provide top level, effective dental services for Mashpee Wampanoag Tribal Members living in the five contract health service delivery areas. This is a proud, honorable and historic day for the Tribe and its vision towards quality health care services for Tribal members," said Cromwell.
During open house week, the theme is "Back to School" and tribal members are encouraged to make cleaning and dental screening appointments for their children by calling 508-477-5811.
