“Providing dental services to low-income patients”
The Community Dental Clinic was established in 1989 when a community needs survey indicated that dental care was the biggest barrier facing low-income families in Crawford and Sebastian Counties. Concerned dentists, with borrowed and donated equipment, performed extractions one evening a month in a room
at a local church. From that small beginning, the clinic
has grown to its present fully staffed, full-time operation.
- Provides basic dental care to low-income families residing in Crawford and Sebastian counties.
- Staffs dentists who volunteer their services to provide fillings, extractions, and a limited number of dentures.
- Offers the “Tooth Fairy” program that provides age-appropriate presentations and educational materials aimed at improving the oral health of children.
- Refers patients who wish to stop using tobacco products to smoking cessation classes.
