Because of the high cost of dental insurance and co-pays, most of our patients have some form of tooth loss from years of poor and inconsistent dental care that requires prosthetics, including crowns and dentures.
Each year GBCHC provides more than $100,000 in dentures and other prosthetics to hundreds of uninsured, low-income patients at no cost to them.
