10 Ways To Make An Impact

Community Dental Support

We serve adults who live in Pinellas County and who have no type of dental insurance, and whose household income is within 200% of the FPL. We offer urgent dental care and primary dental services including exams/x-rays, cleanings, fillings, and extractions for adults in our community who do not have dental insurance or the financial resources to access the care they desperately need.  Without access to care, treatable dental issues can lead to serious overall health problems. Our goal is to improve the dental health and quality of life of our patients, reduce the number of missed workdays,  and preclude unnecessary ER visits.
