Dentistry for Children & Adults
Family Health Center at Virginia Parkway’s Dental Clinic is dedicated to giving your family the smiles they deserve. Our dentist and dental support staff provide superior dental services, and both our dentists are certified for child-friendly First Dental Home. Dental services at our clinic include, but not limited to:
- Referrals to specialists, if needed
- And more…
It is recommended a child should see a dentist by their first birthday, and they should see a dentist every six months to help prevent cavities and other dental issues. Adults should be seen by a dentist at least once per year.
We welcome Medicaid, CHIP and most Dental Insurance.
If you do not have dental insurance you could benefit from a sliding fee scale discount based on family size and income. We welcome all ages, including children in order to give them that extra boost in life that comes with good oral health.
