Blue Ridge Free Dental Clinic

The Blue Ridge Free Dental Clinic is the only non-profit provider of free comprehensive dental care in Western North Carolina. With a focus on restoration and prevention, the Clinic’s staff dentist and 13 volunteer dentists treat patients five days a week, and dental hygiene is offered three days a week at no charge to any patient.  It is well-known that limited financial resources are a barrier to dental care. Medicare does not provide any dental services, and while Medicaid provides limited dental assistance, large portions of the needy population, particularly the working poor and elderly, do not qualify for that program. As a result of this, many patients have gone without dental care for years. Our focus on prevention and dental restoration aims to significantly reduce emergency dental visits.  Lake Toxaway Charities, a financial supporter since 2014, has enabled our Clinic to grow its Hygiene Program and provide regular preventative cleanings for patients.”  For more information, call (828) 743-3393.
