Becoming a Patient

Unfortunately, we remain overwhelmed by the high demand for safety-net dental services. Our primary mission is to help people who are actively enrolled in recovery programs. However, we do see some uninsured community members. Please call at the beginning of the month to see if we have any openings for new patients. If you are in pain, you can walk-in and usually be seen that day. 

Patient Education

Our staff is comprised of a highly talented and diverse group of professionals who make a unique team dedicated to professional excellence and service to others. Many of our clinicians are in training, such as those pictured below, who are residents in an ADA-approved post-doctoral AEG D Residency . In addition, a host of church and community volunteers support the FDC family as a life-giving source of light and love that enhances our capacity to expand and serve more. If you are interested in volunteering at the clinic, either as a dentist, hygienist, assistant, receptionist -- accountant, handy-man, or anything else! -- we welcome your gifts and contributions. Our clinic could not operate without the generous support of our community volunteers.
