Most everyone knows flossing is very important to proper dental hygiene, but did you know floss is also a great way to celebrate a grand opening?
The brand new CMH Family Dental Clinic will be holding a Floss Cutting Ceremony on Monday, November 19th at 5:00 pm at the clinic’s entrance which is outside the C.A.R.E. Building on the VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital campus located at 1755 North Mecklenburg Avenue in South Hill.
An open house will follow at the Dental Clinic where visitors may tour the brand new space and meet the staff of the clinic.
“We are excited to be working with the VCU School of Dentistry to bring this new family dentistry practice to VCU Health CMH to help fill the provider gap caused by the recent retirement of some dentists in our service area. We recognize the valuable services the existing community dentists have been providing in this region for decades and hope to develop strong collegial working relationships with them all,” said W. Scott Burnette, CEO, VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital.
The CMH Family Dental Clinic will open for business on Monday, November 26th at 8:00 am at 1755 North Mecklenburg Avenue. Headed by Dr. Natasha Grover, the six-operatory Dental Clinic will provide a wide range of dental services to area residents. The Dental Clinic is accepting new patients now. Patients may call 434-584-5590 to schedule an appointment.
The CMH Family Dental Clinic was made possible in part by a grant from the Virginia Health Care Foundation.
The Virginia Health Care Foundation awarded the grant to VCU Health CMH because the CMH Family Dental Clinic will be serving, in part, an at-risk patient population. The Clinic will participate in Medicaid’s Smiles For Children Program and will also see patients who qualify for CMH’s indigent and charity care programs.
“VCU Health CMH’s new Family Dental Clinic will bring greatly needed and affordable access to dental and oral health services to this part of Virginia, which is a Dental Professional Shortage Area. This is at the heart of our mission and we are delighted to be a partner in this exciting endeavor,” said Deborah D. Oswalt, Executive Director, Virginia Health Care Foundation.
