The Vineyard / Xenos Free Dental Clinic needs more volunteers. Please consider if you would like to serve with us. God has been glorified through the exciting ministry of this clinic! Thanks to the volunteers sharing the gospel message, patients have come to saving faith through Jesus. There is amazing unity among the volunteers from both churches. Volunteers are crucial in helping to meet very practical and sometimes urgent dental needs, along with spiritual needs.
These are the current volunteer opportunities:
PRAYER TEAM VOLUNTEERS: our prayer team volunteers are the heart of our Free Clinics ministry, as they spend time praying with the patients, including sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with them.
GREETER: welcomes patients to the Dental Clinic and helps them get signed in / registered
COORDINATOR: oversees the flow of the entire clinic, ensuring that all patients see the dental professionals, have the opportunity to pray, etc
OPEN/CLOSE: comes in a bit earlier to help get the dental clinic ready to serve, and stays with the other volunteers to ensure that all equipment, etc, is returned to its proper place before departing the clinic
DENTIST: provides professional dental care to patients
HYGIENISTS/DENTAL ASSISTANTS: assist the dentists with dental care; we do ask that only practicing, experienced hygienists and assistants fill these roles (we do not allow students to work in these roles)
DATA ENTRY: inputs demographic and other information into a system which allows for tracking and retrieval of important patient information
The Vineyard / Xenos Free Dental Clinic began in 2012 by providing free basic dental care to those in need. The clinic, located at 171 East 5th Avenue, is open on Thursday nights and just last year opened its doors one Wednesday per month.
