You can trust us for expert care.
From our experienced providers to new health care technologies, every aspect of our dental care is top-notch. We offer preventive and restorative dental services to everyone, giving special access to veterans, pregnant women and infants. Our dental staff understand the importance of good oral health to overall wellness, and we want every patient to smile with confidence.
Most of all, we bring a positive attitude and approach to health care by helping patients overcome barriers as needed. Our passion for helping people drives our response to changing needs in our community.
Don’t have health insurance? We support patients with a sliding fee program, discounted drug program and insurance enrollment to make care possible, whether underinsured or uninsured.
Need dental prosthetics—such as crowns or dentures—but can’t afford them? We have a Dental Health Fund to support eligible patients with getting the prosthetics they need for good oral health and increased self-esteem.
Don’t live near our health center or have reliable transportation? We have mobile dental clinics to bring quality health care closer to you.
Don’t speak fluent English? We have interpreter services, along with some bilingual staff, to help you understand your health care journey, and to ensure you feel understood.
