Piedmont Access to Health Services, Inc. (PATHS) was recently awarded a grant for $132,500 from the Virginia Health Care Foundation to open a dental clinic in Boydton, Virginia.

The Foundation has a long history of supporting the work of community health centers in providing primary care, behavioral health and dental care to Virginia’s low income, uninsured.

PATHS plans on opening its dental clinic August 5th. Dr. David Eason has been hired to return to the clinic. He looks forward to serving the dental needs of his former patients, as well as, meeting new ones.   CEO, Kay Crane states that “dental care is one of the services that is much needed in the area. She further stated that “without the grant from the Virginia Health Care Foundation, providing this service would have been put off for at least a year.” The board and staff are committed to providing quality medical and dental care to the citizen’s of Boydton and Mecklenburg County.

PATHS operates four Federally Qualified Community Health Centers in Virginia and has been in operations since 2001. Currently PATHS operates a dental clinic in Danville, along with a Community Pharmacy. In a previous collaboration with the Virginia Health Care Foundation, PATHS also is able to offer behavioral health services in Danville and Pittsylvania County.
