Free Dental Care Brings Back Smiles
If you’ve ever had a toothache and couldn’t get in to see a dentist right away, you now have a glimpse of the long-term pain many of our clients endure. The difference is, most insured adults are able to see a dentist within a day or two when there is an emergency while uninsured adults may wait months or even years living in pain. Our Samaritan Dental Clinic is here to help uninsured adults living within the Federal poverty level. We are the only full-service charitable dental clinic in Northwest Arkansas.
Serving uninsured adults who cannot afford to purchase dental care, our clinic utilizes both volunteer and staff dentists and hygienists to provide a full range of dental services to our patients.
When a patient is initially scheduled in our clinic for the restorative program, they receive a comprehensive exam by our staff dentist who then develops an oral treatment plan specific to that patient’s needs. Follow-up appointments are then scheduled to complete restorative care, extractions, and cleanings as needed.
Evening Dental Clinic Specializing In Acute Pain
Appointments for our evening clinics are scheduled one month in advance. Once scheduled for an evening appointment a patient will be seen by a volunteer dentist for an exam and x-ray. Treatment or services will be provided at the time of appointment. The purpose of evening clinic is to educate the patient on their current dental issues that can cause acute pain and to determine if a tooth/teeth needs removal.
