WHY DENTAL? WHY NOW?
A 2017 needs assessment identified the following top health disparities
impacting the North Georgia community in order:
• DENTAL CARE
• Cardiovascular health
• Mental health
Our goal is to be a destination for need-based patients in Georgia and provide excellent, affordable dental care in an environment of Christ centered compassion.
Highlands Christian Dental Center is a 501(c)3 charitable foundation dedicated to providing life transformation through the care of patients with the generosity of highly skilled health care professionals as well as community and industry support.
We provide basic to advanced and specialty adult care by expert clinicians with an excess of 150 years of combined experience. Each clinician provides their time through the generosity of their heart and through a genuine love for the community.
WE see the need for quality care in our community and
WE are committed to excellence.
LOCAL AND NATIONAL ISSUE
A recent assimilation of Emergency Room national data compiled for dental only illustrates a striking needs.
2.4 million dental related ER visits annually at a total cost of >$2.5 B
Average charge/visit : $1,294
No specific, consistent treatment delivered in the ER’s.
Predominance of patients were adults 19-45 from urban, low income areas.
Average household income <$66,000 with over 75% having little or no insurance
TOP THREE CONCLUSIONS IN THE STUDY:
• ER's are not equipped or staffed to provide the necessary dental care.
• ER's visits delay and do not replace the need for private dental office visits.
• There is an extremely high need for collaborative solutions with the community partners to provide effective dental care for need based patients.
