Oral diseases ranging from cavities to oral cancers cause pain and disability for millions of Americans. The impact of these diseases does not stop at the mouth and teeth. A growing body of evidence has linked oral health, particularly gum disease, to several chronic diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. In pregnant women, poor oral health has also been associated with premature births and low birth weight. These conditions may be prevented in part with regular visits to the dentist.
Our Charity Dental Services
We offer low-cost dental care to serve those who are poor, do not have dental insurance, and cannot afford routine dental care in traditional settings. Dental services are available only to persons living in households with total income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. Income documentation is required before a dental appointment can be scheduled.
Our services are limited to:
- Adult and Child Hygiene (teeth cleaning )
- Filling of cavities
- Restoration of front teeth, including root canals
- Partials and Dentures
Good Sam Gwinnett does not offer orthodontics (braces), endodontic treatment of molars, oral surgery, periodontal treatment, fixed prosthodontics, implants, and cosmetic dentistry.
An advance appointment is required to see a dentist; no walk-in appointments are available. Your first appointment will be for an initial examination and x-rays to determine a dental treatment plan. A dental appointment fee is due at the time of service. If you have a dental appointment and do not come to the clinic to see the dentist when scheduled, you will not be scheduled again and must find charitable dental services elsewhere.
Please call 678-280- 6630 (Buford Hwy.) or 770-806-0162 (Jimmy Carter Blvd.) for more information about our low-cost dental services.
Up to 300 dental appointments provided monthly
You should brush at least twice a day, floss regularly, and get your teeth cleaned every six months to avoid painful and expensive gum disease.
“This clinic is such a blessing! I endured tooth pain for months before discovering I could afford to come here even though I don’t have dental insurance.”
