CAHABA MEDICAL CARE - DENTAL OFFICE
For several years, it has been a goal of Cahaba Medical Care to provide its patients and the communities it serves with better access to oral healthcare. With the help of an Oral Health Expansion grant awarded in July 2016, CMC was able to take the first significant step toward meeting that goal by opening a Dental Office in Centreville. After a 120-day implementation, which included the purchase and renovation of a new building, the hiring of staff, purchasing of supplies, and installation of new software, the Cahaba Medical Care - Dental Office opened to patients on October 7, 2016.
Cahaba Medical Care is proud of the services provided through the dental office, which is open to all patients regardless of their insurance status. All procedures are available to patients with or without insurance on a sliding fee basis, should the patient qualify based on an income analysis. The dental office also accepts all major insurances, Care Credit, and Medicaid.
The dental office accepts patients of all ages, including young children ages 6 months and older. We feel it is important to begin preventative oral health care at an early age in order to make an impact on the burdens of oral health disease that is prevalent in Bibb County. To further these efforts, the Cahaba Medical Care - Dental Office is actively involved in promoting the importance of oral healthcare in the community.
Cahaba Medical Care - Dental Office offers the following services:
Composites (tooth-colored), fillings, crowns, bridges, extractions, partials, dentures, bleaching, periodontal treatments, Children & Adult cleanings, fluoride treatments, sealants, veneers, bonding, root canal, repair of dentures and partials, realign dentures and partials, occlusal guards, and most general dentistry
