Redwoods Rural has had a mobile dental program for several years. We love servicing the needs of the community in a new and effective way. This program has allowed us to reach out to different schools and children in very remote areas. The RRHC dental van is headed to the following locations:

  • Rio Dell (May 28th, 2024 - on) - at 95 Center St. 

  • Fortuna (February 2024-May 2024). 

Dental Van

We are very excited to announce the purchase of a brand new 2019 Mobile Dental Van!

The program has been so successful that we are now looking forward to our new 39th Winnebago, with two full operatories to better meet the needs of the community.

Dental Expansion Project 

We are thrilled to announce the expansion of full service dentistry in Southern Humboldt! 


Thanks to a combination of generous community members donations, federal grants and loans, Redwoods Rural opened a full service Dental Office at 217 Briceland Thorn Road in Redway. Renovation, upgrade, and equipment purchasing were completed, and the office opened on March 8th, 2021.

We extend our deep gratitude to all the donors for their generous donations, and to our community for your continuous support!
