J.C. Lewis Dental Center Gives Kids A Smile

J.C. Lewis Primary Healthcare Center has hosted Give Kids A Smile events for five years in the community as a way to provide free dental care to local qualifying children who desperately need it.

Nearly one in four children under the age of five already has cavities, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Many children enrolled in Medicaid receive no dental services throughout the year.

The dedicated professionals at J.C. Lewis emphasize the importance of raising awareness of the epidemic of untreated dental disease occurring locally and nationally, and creating local public and private partnerships to increase access to oral health care to solve this crisis.

Besides helping children, the J.C. Lewis Dental Center (next to J.C. Lewis Primary Health Center) provides the following preventive, restorative and emergency oral health services to adults: Prophylaxis (Prophy), Fluoride Treatment, Sealants, Oral health education, Dentures, Partials, Bridges, Composite Fillings, Amalgam Fillings, Root canals, Permanent Crowns, Extractions.

Services are provided at an affordable rate to qualifying insured, uninsured, and homeless persons with limited income. Picture ID, proof of income (WG-15 form if they are unemployed) and verification forms (homeless) are required at the time of service to determine eligibility. Cash and credit cards are accepted. No personal checks. While walk-in care is open daily, patients with appointments are seen first. To find out more information or schedule an appointment, please call J.C. Lewis Dental Center  544-0867 or J.C Lewis Primary Health (912) 495-8887
