Oral Care from a Gentle Dentist: We Can Fix Small Problems Before They Become Big.

Shenandoah Community Health Clinic encourages patients to see the dentist for a yearly exam, children should be seen twice per year. Hygiene treatments (teeth cleaning) should be done twice per year. These services are also available at the Shenandoah County public school campus in Quicksburg. If you’re interested in acquiring services from that location, please mention it when you call for an appointment. Once patients have exams, x-rays and hygiene, the dentist can advise you of further treatments that may be needed. Shenandoah Community Health Clinic can assist patients with toothaches and abscesses, fillings, root canals and crowns, and tooth extractions. Like most of the other services at Shenandoah Community Health Clinic, dental services are available on most weekdays. Virginia Medicaid coverage is accepted and there are reduced fees available to those who don’t have insurance. Call (540) 459- 9333 to schedule your appointment today.

Our Dentist Can Enhance Your Overall Health.

Many of us think of our dentist when we have a toothache. Do you realize how important dental care is to your overall health and well being? Oral health is integral to general health, according to the US Surgeon General. Regular exams and hygiene treatments can help prevent problems, or find and treat small problems before they become big problems. That mild toothache may lead to infection and raging pain if not treated in a timely fashion.

Here’s How It Works:

Call to make an appointment and give us your insurance information. If you can afford the copay required by your insurance company, you will be asked for that amount at the time of your visit. If you can’t afford the copay, or don’t have insurance coverage, our staff members can determine which sliding scale fee is correct based on your family income. To receive these highly discounted fees, you will need to bring financial information from your family such as your federal tax filing or recent pay stubs from family members. The staff member will review these documents while you complete the registration paperwork.

Discover Disease Before It’s Too Late.

Many diseases and conditions have oral manifestations. Regular dental checkups can discover oral cancers and sometimes the dentist may spot symptoms of underlying health issues that should be addressed by a medical professional. Dental problems are associated with diabetes, cardiovascular disease and stroke. Oral health problems are major contributors to lost time from school or work. Toothaches can become problems for getting adequate nutrition. Whether you have a throbbing toothache or want to give yourself the gift of better health, call (540) 459- 9333 for an appointment with the dentist at Shenandoah Community Health Clinic.
