Good oral health is essential to overall physical and psychological health. Poor oral health is linked to health problems such as premature birth and low birth weight in pregnant women, heart disease, stroke, difficulty in controlling blood sugar in diabetics, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic kidney disease, asthma, and other diseases.
At the clinic we believe every individual deserves access to quality, compassionate dental care. We strive to improve the dental health of the community with emphasis on education, prevention, and early intervention.
The Dental Health Clinic provides dental care for the whole community, in every stage of life. We encourage parents to bring in their infants at six months of age or the eruption of the first tooth.
