Mission Statement

The purpose of Fish for Teeth is to provide dental care, prevention, and education to children living in San Juan County, and other communities as they become involved, whose families do not have the means to maintain proper dental health care. This scope of “childhood” shall include children and teens up to age 18, young adults with an emphasis on those pursuing higher education either at university or trade school, or worthy adults who actively give of themselves to benefit the community in which they live. While following this mission, Fish for Teeth shall bring attention to the benefits of commercial fishing such as harvesting from sustainable resources in a manner with zero to low impact on the environment, bringing this harvest to people who otherwise would have no way of enjoying this healthful and delicious food, and stimulating local economies including the positive influence of fisheries on local businesses and ports which fishers patronize.
