About Us

We Meet a Need in North Carolina

Our location in Durham means we can serve the needs of the surrounding communities such as Raleigh and Greensboro. And there is a need among North Carolinians for tooth replacement services:

Approximately 30% of all North Carolinians over age 65 have no natural teeth. Furthermore, the state has more than twice the national rate of costly emergency room dental visits, where patients generally receive treatment only for pain and not for the underlying causes of dental distress.

Edentulous adults are often treated as second-class citizens, facing economic barriers as well as health-related problems. Adults missing only a few teeth often encounter difficulties finding jobs commensurate with their abilities and are relegated to low-paying positions or unemployment.

Our Mission

We Are a Non-Profit Facility and Accept Medicaid and VA Benefits

Our non-profit model means that while we do not accept major commercial insurance providers, we do accept VA benefits and Medicaid, something few other dental service providers do.

We also offer income-based sliding scale fees, and of course, we accept private payment for our top-quality services for those with the means to pay.

Our mission is to serve the diverse community of North Carolinians in need of tooth replacement services and change lives by changing smiles.
