EUREKA, Calif.(KIEM)- A massive spending bill passed by Congress earlier this month will help fund a million-dollar expansion of a Eureka dental clinic.
Congressman Jared Huffman championed the funding in the annual appropriations bill for the Burre Dental Center in Eureka.
This funding boost will allow the dental facility to expand its capacity by 8-thousand visits per year. In particular, that expansion will be focused on providing added Children’s Dental care.
“Well, absolutely open up the opportunity for us to hire more staff in addition to up to three dentists. It would also allow us to hire likely six or more registered dental assistants,” said Sarah Ross with Open Door Community Health Centers.
