DENTAL HELP IN NORTH CAROLINA

soulight started this conversation

 

 

Safety Net Dental Clinics in North Carolina

Across North Carolina, there now are more than 75 dental clinics dedicated to serving low-income patients who have limited access to dental care. This number is close to three times the number of facilities that existed in the early 1990s. Typically, these clinics are operated by local public health departments, community health centers, or other non-profit organizations. Most of these clinics accept patients enrolled in Medicaid or Health Choice. Many of these clinics also provide services on a sliding-fee scale to low-income patients who have no dental insurance. These Safety Net Dental Clinics are located in most counties in the state. If there is not a local Safety Net Dental Clinic in your area, contact your county health department for information on available resources. Also, the North Carolina Community Health Center Association (NCCHCA) maintains a list of community health centers operating in North Carolina. Contact the community health center nearest you to find out if they provide dental care.

About NCMOM-Charlotte
An Introduction to NCMOM

The North Carolina Missions of Mercy (NCMOM) portable free dental program is an outreach program of the North Carolina Dental Society.
The program's primary sponsor is the North Carolina Dental Health Fund which is a 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt organization whose mission is:
"To provide free dental services to those in financial need with few or no other options."
To involve as much of the dental community of the state in the treatment of the under served as is possible.
NCMOM is a grassroots effort, dependent entirely on volunteers, including dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, and scores of general volunteers which donate their time and talents tirelessly.
Since the clinics are held in areas provided by the hosting organizations, there are no facility expenses.
The majority of the supplies are obtained at discounted rates from dental supply dealers.
NCMOM is dependent on funding from charitable organizations, civic organizations, private corporate & personal donations as well as grants.

Goals for the NCMOM-Charlotte Project
TEAM WITH MINISTERIAL, CIVIC AND CORPORATE ORGANIZATIONS TO:

Provide free dental treatment services to 2,500 or more qualifying adults.
Set-up a mobile on one hundred (100) station dental treatment facility with thirty-six (36) operational hours.
Set-up Registration, Health Screening, X-ray and Triage Stations to support the dental treatment facility.
Inclusion of other regional mobile dental facilities such as the Ada Jenkins Dental Van and the Colgate Regional Dental Bus
To provide special benefits/services to those who seek services at the Charlotte MOM Project.
Encourage awareness and future volunteerism for the benefit of these allied dental facilities.
To verify the NC MOM Program as a ministry in the hearts and minds of the sponsors, the volunteers (both professional and non) and the public.

NCMOM is an affiliated program of the North Carolina Dental Society.

In case you haven't found help yet, etc., have you contacted UNC Chapel Hill Dental School Clinic @919-537-3997 ? With Medicaid, you may be able to be seen & treated for free, though it's a process; In an emergency, there may be alternatives within their clinic.

Hi To all who read this!! I reside in Raleigh NC, I am currently 29 yrs old & have had nothing but problem after problem with my teeth since I was young!! I have had a 6 tooth bridge put in numerous root canals, crowns, & fillings after fillings!! I am now left with a major problem in my mouth & im not willing to give up my pride for dentures!!! I seek dental implants so just maybe i can live a 1/2 normal life without going to the dentist every other week! I'm not looking for free work but i am looking for affordable work to be done as I truly don't want to have to sell my pride because I'm not wealthy!! Please!!! if anyone can help me with this I'm ready & willing to travel almost anywhere in the US just so i can hold my head high!! Thank you everyone who reads!! :-)

Abscessed_Sick_DepressedSoul
I am a disabled 46 year old male who has multiple abscesses off and on. I only have pieces of 7 lower teeth and a couple of others that are broken off at gumline. I am in constant pain and I stay sick all the time. Most of the food I try to eat has to be very soft or put in a blender. The insurance I have with Medicare and Humana doesn't cover extractions or dentures. I can't even spend quality time with my children or my grandchildren because the poison from the abscesses keeps me in constant pain and so sick it makes me vomit violently at times. Eating is a punishment and torture the military would refuse to even use on a terrorist. If anyone knows of a dentist in the Siler City, Chatham County area of North Carolina that can help me it would be very appreciated. My monthly disability check doesn't even cover my monthly living exspenses so I can't afford to pay for services unless a payment plan of $5 or less a month could be set up. Thank you ahead of time for any information that can be provided to help me! God Bless and have a wonderful day.
