At San Francisco Community Health Center, we believe oral health is attainable by all, regardless of race, color, sexuality, gender, or economic status. We focus on whole patient wellness, education and quality affordable dental care. We understand many of our patients have a long history of substance abuse and dental neglect or trauma and feel a certain amount of shame about the state of their oral health. We will work with you on your oral health goals because in our clinic we treat our patients like family.
Oral health is extremely time sensitive. The longer you wait to get a filling placed or a biopsy analyzed, the more expensive the treatment will be to save that tooth (or your life). Recent studies have associated gum disease to heart disease, diabetes, and even macular degeneration. We encourage our patients to see the dentist on a regular basis, not just when you have a toothache.
