The mission of the Piedmont Virginia Dental Health Foundation is to improve the oral health of our community's disadvantaged citizens through dental and dental hygiene services and focused oral health education.
- In our initial 10 years, there have been approximately 37,000 patient visits to the Community Dental Clinic.
- At Memorial Hospital of Martinsville & Henry County, the Emergency Department has experienced a decrease in dental visits (a total decrease of 34 percent since 2007), and the reason for that decrease is the Community Dental Clinic.
- The Clinic is considered the best extramural site for VCU dental students in the entire Commonwealth of Virginia.
- The Foundation has provided more than $8 million in dental services to unemployed and uninsured children and adults in our community in its initial 10 years.
