Providing critical dental treatment to the needy in Jackson Macon Swain & Transylvania Counties of Western North Carolina

Make a Donation

In 2019, the Clinic completed 5,623 procedures for 726 patients. Last year's services included 1,338 extractions, 1,289 fillings, 500 cleanings, 82 dentures/partials and crowns, 14 root canals and 91 surgical procedures, with a market value of nearly $1,100,000. This would not be possible without your support.

Your investment in the Clinic today will ensure that we can:

  • Maintain emergency operations with competent, compassionate staff
  • Produce virtual hygiene and prevention webcasts for local students who are currently enjoying "virtual school"
  • Provide training to staff for best practices during a crisis
  • Purchase critical supplies for the safety of our patients and staff
  • Reach out to patients in need of exams through a telemedicine service
  • Recruit volunteer dentists for the future when we are back at full capacity—and we expect the future to be bright!
  • Continue serving over 700 patients each year

Right now, we continue to serve dental emergencies. It is the Clinic's hope to resume all restorative and preventative procedures that have been postponed because of COVID-19 within 12 months. While we understand the importance of emergency dental care, our true vision is to "put ourselves out of business" through restoration and prevention. A focus on all three components of our model of care reaches our overarching goal of increasing access to dental care to low-income residents of WNC. However, we believe that restoration and prevention lead to fewer emergencies—that is the ultimate goal.

We genuinely believe that hope begins with a smile! If you are able, please give generously. Be the reason someone smiles today.
