About Community Dental Care
We are one of the largest not-for-profit dental practices in Minnesota and we provide a complete array of preventative, restorative, and emergency dental services to a diverse community of individuals, children, families, and the elderly – anyone who needs care.
The Problem of Access to Care is Dramatic – and You Can Help.
We believe access to quality dental care is the greatest gap in the American healthcare system. There is an overwhelming body of evidence that good oral hygiene and quality dental care are critical to overall health, personal performance and well-being. People who lack access to good dental care suffer disproportionately from the many effects of the unfilled need for care.
Accessible? We speak more than 25 languages.
Our clinic locations, dedicated multicultural professional staff, and welcoming policies enables us to make high quality dental care accessible to individuals and families in need.
We deliver quality dentistry to tens of thousands of Minnesotans.
Each year, we care for nearly 50,000 patients, who are served by our 270 staff members, including dentists, hygienists, assistants, and administrative team. Our patients come from all walks of life and income groups – many require public assistance, so they do not always have the resources to pay for the care they need.
We rely on donations – and the generosity of the community.
Our quality care and accessibility is only possible through generous donations from individuals, businesses and foundations, as well as government sponsored public programs. This financial support is essential to our ability to serve the thousands of Minnesotans who might otherwise not receive much needed care.
Each day, we open our doors – and our arms – to the individuals, children, and families who need the vital care we provide. All are welcome here.
