Oral Health Care
At the Health Care Center for the Homeless (HCCH), another focal point of our services is our oral health program. Good oral health is part of an individual's overall well-being and also contributes to self-esteem. Studies have shown that poor oral health may be related to cardiovascular disease and can impact nutritional health as well. Our dental clinic resides within the Orange Blossom Family Health Center, the delivery site for our many services and programs. Oral health services are provided by a team of dentists, hygienists, dental assistants, and students. Emergency dental care, oral screenings, cleanings, restoration work, and referrals for surgery are some of the services provided. Low cost full or partial dentures are also available to our patients, aided in the process by our volunteer, Sister Jessica. HCCH has an established pediatric dental program that benefits both children and their families by providing oral health education. Our newest addition to this program is our mobile dental unit, taking oral health services out into the community with a focus on underserved youth in local schools. Better dental care not only gives someone a better smile, but also helps to build an individual's confidence. A nice smile can be essential in gaining employment in Central Florida's service driven economy. For our homeless patients who have no other way of affording dentures, we have a denture sponsorship program , completely funded by private donations.
