The Community Health and Wellness Center in Torrington, Connecticut will open next week to provide dental care services for its patients, according to The Register Citizen.
While the center offered healthcare, the dental program was being planned throughout the last year. Although it is not open for dental treatments just yet, appointments can still be made.
John Waterman, dental director for the center, told the newspaper that nearly six dental chairs were accommodated for the new addition. A digital x-ray machine along with other equipment was also acquired to help provide patients with treatment that include check-ups, fillings, cleanings, root-canals, dentures and crowns.
Waterman told the news source that "anyone, regardless of the level of insurance they have" will be able to receive dental care. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that people who are uninsured are among those who have the poorest oral hygiene in the U.S.
Individuals may want to consider seeking affordable, low-cost dental coverage, as poor dental health has been linked to diabetes and heart disease, according to the CDC.
