Additional Dental Programs
ACCESS Dental Program
GFHS’ ACCESS dental program has partnered with Title 1 elementary schools and the Head Start program in Gaston County since 2000, providing dental care to school children otherwise unlikely to receive it. Children are bussed to clinics during school hours, where they receive oral health education, preventative care, examinations and treatment. All care is provided at no cost to the patient. Building on this success, the program expanded to Iredell County in 2009. The program continues to grow, expanding on the proven success in meeting a glaring need in the community and establishing lasting oral care habits for children at an early age.
Childhood Health Outreach Program (CHOP)
The CHOP program works to integrate medical and dental services for GFHS’ patients, and coordinates access to dental care for children served through the Gaston County Department of Health & Human Services’ WIC and Child Health clinics. Through educational literature, on-site advice and appointment services, patients are educated on dental services offered, and are assisted in obtaining care in a seamless, convenient manner.
