Oral Health plays a critical role in general health and well-being. People that have access to routine dental care can reduce their risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and cancer.
In 2016 Wheeling Health Right launched a Dental Clinic to help thousands of under-served people in the Northern Panhandle in partnership with the WV Association of Free & Charitable Clinics (WVAFFC).
Wheeling Health Right has been working for years to address the unmet needs of the community we serve. Since the ACA, including expanded Medicaid and the Marketplace, do not address adult dental care, it seemed natural for the clinic to move to address this unmet need and bring dental health care to the primary care setting in the Ohio Valley.
Local Dentists and WVU Dental Students provide dental services to Wheeling Health Right patients.
Wheeling Health Rights dental services include:
- Screening Exams and X-Rays
- Extractions and Fillings
- Medications for Infections and Pain
To receive dental services, you must establish with a Wheeling Health Right Primary Care Provider. No outside PCP will be accepted.
Patients suffering with dental pain and infection can receive antibiotics from our on-site Pharmacy. Wheel Health Right does not prescribe controlled substances.
