Virginia dental practices aim to improve access to oral care
Updated: 11/16/2010 4:59:56 PM

Virginia dental practices aim to improve access to oral care Danville Dental Associates (DDA) recently added another office, marking its fourth, to better serve members of the South Boston and Halifax counties, WSLS-TV reports.

Prior to the addition, patients in the area had to travel 15 miles in order to receive dental care. Albert Payne, dentist at DDA, told the news provider that the new location will be much more convenient for these individuals.

By opening up the new practice that is considered another one of the "satellite offices," it allows the dentists to have access to patients' records from multiple areas, the news provider reports. It also allows for more space, adding three more dentists to provide treatment. A root canal specialist also recently began to travel to one of DDA's offices due to the amount of local need for this type of treatment.

According to Payne, Danville is still considered an underprivileged area and that going forward, "the dental needs of the community will be met."

It may be especially important for individuals to receive proper dental care and regular exams because poor oral hygiene has been linked to chronic diseases, including diabetes and heart disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Fortunately, there are affordable ways in which individuals can seek dental care for themselves and their families.
