TOPPENISH - Stephen Davis, DDS, has been named director of the Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic Dental Department. Currently the lead dentist at the Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic, Toppenish Medical-Dental Clinic, Dr. Davis will assume this new role in addition to his current responsibilities. The Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic offers a dental residency program and recently began a new dental training program in partnership with YV Tech in Yakima. Dr. Davis' position was created to help meet the growing dental services provided by the Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic, according to agency spokesperson Gina Popovic. In addition, the dental services provided at the Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic are expanding to better provide patients with dental and medical care under one roof. This concept follows the recent movement to more centralized Patient Centered Health Homes. Dr. Davis has taken a leadership role in helping build that philosophy within the clinics. Dr. Davis began working with the Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic in 2007. He will be working alongside Mark Koday, DDS, who has been leading the Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic Dental Department since 2000. Dr. Koday will assume the title of Chief Dental Officer to better align with the Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic corporate administrative structure. Both dentists will share the administrative management of the dental department.
