A regional non-profit dental clinic is over the moon with news they’ve won top prize in an online competition.
They secured most votes across BC in the contest put on by Pacific Blue Cross.
They win $50,000.
Board member Eric Ramsden says their West Kootenay Community Teeth Clinic is very popular with residents throughout the region.
Options include perhaps having another dental location in another community.
Currently dentists working in Nelson offer the discounted services for people on low income and without insurance.
