Our philosophy is to provide complimentary dental services to as many people as possible, rather than to provide many services to fewer people. To fulfill that promise, only one major service is usually performed on each patient. We will do multiple extractions or fillings at one time. However, you will not receive both of these services at one time. 

What services are provided at a clinic?

All patients at a NCDSF MOM clinic are examined by a licensed dentist to determine their most critical need. Based on the examination, either tooth fillings (restorations), tooth removal (extractions) or teeth cleaning will be performed. At some clinics, partial dentures may be provided to replace front teeth only. Please note: Patients requiring partials must be available both days of the clinic.
