The South Central Health District Dental Clinic provides dental screenings for Head Start Centers, dental health education programs for pre-schools, and schools. We provide a teledentistry service, screening, and fluoride in the Wilcox County Health Department on Thursdays. We participate in School and Community Health Fairs.
Children’s Dental Clinic
The Dental Clinic focuses on prevention, screening and referral, treatment, and oral health education for children aged 0-18. The most common dental problems that children have are dental decay, gum disease, and malocclusion. Most of these problems are preventable. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment can eliminate pain, infection, and progressive oral diseases. Our dental services include:
- Exams and cleanings
- Dental screenings
- Oral Hygiene Education
- Fluoride varnish
- Dental sealants
- Referrals to child health services
Infants and toddlers need to see a dentist by age one or as soon as the first tooth erupts.
The Dental clinic accepts all Medicaid Dental Insurances (Wellcare, Peach State, Amerigroup, CareSource) and offers a sliding fee scale for children without dental insurance coverage.
