Seventh-day Adventist Clinic: Caring with a smile

Dr. Warren Creed fixes the teeth of a patient during the “Give Kids a Smile” event on Feb. 7, 2014, at the Seventh-day Adventist Clinic. (Jayson Camacho) For over 40 years the Saipan’s Seventh-day Adventist Clinic has been providing quality care with a smile to the people of Saipan. All of our dentists as well as dental hygienists are U.S.-trained. In addition to general dentistry such as fillings, extractions, and dentures, the clinic also specializes in treating small children who can benefit from services such as oral sedation (sleep dentistry) or general anesthesia dentistry, with an anesthesiologist by their side. Late last year the SDA clinic was fortunate enough to hire its own in-house orthodontist. Dr. Warren Creed, who has over 20 years experience, will be calling Saipan home for years to come. Dr. Robert Gatewood, a board-certified and U.S-trained periodontist, has been working with the clinic for years now, specializing in dental implants.

The Seventh-day Adventist Clinic is committed to making a positive difference in the oral health of the CNMI. Throughout the year the SDA has been involved in several outreach programs on island. The first Friday in February the clinic celebrated the 6th annual “Give Kids a Smile” program by opening the doors to all the children who do not have any dental insurance. In addition to free dental treatment the children were given free toothbrushes, dental floss, as well as informational material to take home for the parents to read. Through the month of February and October SDA sponsors various oral health presentations in the elementary public schools. These presentations are very helpful in educating the children on the importance of taking care of their teeth.

The SDA clinic has been blessed with the support of the local community. It is our pleasure to provide quality service to our Saipan family. We would like to invite you to take an opportunity to come by and see our facility or better yet schedule a free exam and find out how we can better serve you. Please call our office at 670-234-6323 for an appointment.
