Bellingham dentist, Dr. Eric McRory, and our team at Northside Dental Care have been supporters of the Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association (NSEA) for many years. Dr. Mike McRory (Dr. Eric McRory’s father) founded the organization back in 1990 where it started as started as “a coalition of community members and partners who work together for restoration of wild salmon runs in Whatcom County, from the Canadian border to the Skagit Watershed.” 

Dr. McRory is a volunteer dentist for Interfaith Community Health Center, a local nonprofit health center providing affordable health care for children and adults in Whatcom County.

For many years, Interfaith’s dental care was only available to children. Struggling adults in need of dental care were only able to go to the Emergency Room for treatment. This resulted in a lack of ongoing preventive care for the patient, as well as higher costs for the community.

This changed in 2006, when Dr. McRory and a group of other volunteer Bellingham dentists stepped in to utilize Interfaith’s facilities to provide care for adults as well as children. Dr. McRory is proud to be a part of this vital effort to provide dental care for those in need.

Dr. McRory is also a member of the Sunrise Rotary Club of Bellingham.
