Chicopee, MA: The Chicopee Health Center (CHC), a satellite site of Holyoke Health Center, Inc., announces the completion of an expansion project in the Dental Department with the grand opening of 5 additional chairs, creating a total of 13 state of the art, full service operatories at that location. The expansion allows further growth of dental services provided by CHC, including pediatric dental care, orthodontics, and capacity to accept new patients. On Monday, May 20th at 12pm, CHC will host an official ribbon cutting event celebrating the completion of the expansion that will increase access to dental services for patients throughout Western Massachusetts.
The CHC Dental Department currently serves over 1,700 patients living in Western MA, some of which reside as far as Amherst, Westfield, and Ware. As a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQCH), CHC ensures access to full service dentistry regardless of coverage or income, and is one of the few dental centers in Western MA that provides high-quality oral health care to patients on Medicaid or without dental insurance. CHC's expansion of dental services is the result of the increasing need for affordable oral health care throughout Western MA.
The additional capacity at the CHC is particularly helpful to low-income families with children, as there are fewer dental care providers who both see children and accept Medicaid. CHC's Dental Dept. is accepting new patients of all ages, and has open availability beginning May 20th. Services include cleanings, emergency visits, oral surgery, sedation dentistry and braces.
