The need for free and charitable dental clinics is not going to disappear as a result of Obama health care reform. Most likely because the implementation of Obamacare will fail. But that’s an opinion and one better argued in another discussion. If you accept the premise, then there is some information that you or someone you know may find valuable I would like to pass along.
According to the Georgia Free Clinic Network there are 104 free/charity clinics serving Georgia patients. The network offers health care to the uninsured at no costs to the taxpayers of this State. GFCN provides a safety net that fills the gaps in our taxpayer-funded system of health care, including oral health care.
One of the charitable clinics is in Augusta at Georgia Regents University dental clinic operated by the faculty and students. This facility reaches out to our communities with an unwavering commitment to our local population’s underserved needs. The programs focus on preventing, controlling and reducing oral diseases and conditions in all of Georgia’s underserved populations.
So there really is no reason why you shouldn’t see a dentist if you are uninsured, under insured or unemployed. Please take the time to lead someone in need in the right direction. And as always if we can be of help please feel free to contact our office for oral health needs. If you would like to schedule a visit or consultation please contact:

They look forward to hearing from you.
