We are here to provide dental care to those local to the Dan River Region. The links between oral health and overall health are well publicized. In following the mission, PATHS wants to make sure that everyone who needs access to dental care gets it – whether they have insurance or not.
All forms of insurance, including Medicaid, are accepted and sliding scale payment options are available for those who qualify.
When someone with dental insurance or Medicaid chooses PATHS’ Community Dental Clinic for their dental needs, they are making it possible for someone without insurance to receive the same quality care.
