Community Dental Clinic

The Community Dental Clinic serves the needs of those low-income residents of Sebastian and Crawford counties who are in pain and cannot afford to go to a dentist.

The clinic is staffed with licensed, experienced dentists who are both paid and volunteer.  Many of the patients are striving to get off public assistance or are the working poor.  The dentists at the Community Dental Clinic perform extractions and fill cavities.  All patients receive oral cancer screening.

The Dental Clinic also has a limited denture program for those who have no other choice but to have all their teeth removed.  Though the completion can take several months, the end result is worth it!

The Tooth Fairy Program travels to places where children are present to teach them proper oral hygiene techniques.  Scheduled presentations can be made by calling the clinic.

Delta Dental Foundation

Delta Dental Foundation has enabled the Community Dental Clinic to provide dentures to a limited number of citizens who qualify under our income guidelines.  Partials, alignments and adjustments, and extractions are included in the treatment. New smiles are born every week as a result of the professional volunteer dentists and the funding provided by the Delta Dental Foundation.

Degen Foundation

The Degen Foundation recently gifted the clinic with funding to update our diagnostics and x-ray equipment to a state-of-the art digital system. Each of the four operatives are equipped with monitors and digital equipment to enable the dentist to fully diagnose what patients need in a more timely and cost efficient manner.  For the first time in its’ 20 year history, the clinic is now able to provide preventive dental care such as fillings, limited root canals, and even an occasional crown.  This is all due to the equipment upgrades.

Mission Statement

The Community Dental Clinic, a program of Crawford-Sebastian Community Development Council, Inc. a non-profit corporation, is committed to relieving suffering, restoring human dignity, and promoting self-sufficiency by providing basic dental care to the people of Crawford and Sebastian Counties who have no other resources available.
