The mission of the IDEA Clinic is to provide comprehensive dental care for the underserved patients in the greater Spokane area.  IDEA offers a sliding fee scale to those who cannot afford access to existing dental care.  Finally, IDEA serves as an outlet for volunteer dentists to donate their time and talents to improve the health, welfare, and lives of our patients.
