Dental Care

MEHOP Heath Center's Dental Clinic provides comprehensive Family Dentistry services to children starting at 6 months of age and adults. We recognize the importance of good oral health and the impact it can have on an individual's overall health and well being.

On your first visit with our clinic, we will take x-rays and perform an oral exam. If any dental concerns are identified, we will provide you with a treatment plan detailing the treatment needed and will also schedule your next visit.

MEHOP Dental offers a full range of adult and pediatric dentistry services which include routine exams and cleanings, sealants, extractions, fillings, crowns, root canals, teeth whitening, dentures, partials and oral health education. Our dental clinic is also equipped with state of the art technology including digital x rays and a paperless environment for patient records and is recognized as a First Dental Home provider by Medicaid for children 6 months - 35 months.

If you have had x-rays taken within the last 6 months at another dental office, you may have them forwarded by email to us.

MEHOP accepts all patients. We are an in-network provider for most private insurance carriers and Medicaid.

If you are uninsured or have limited insurance benefits, we offer discounts (sliding fees) for services based on household size and income if eligible. Health Center programs assure that no patient will be denied or unable to access health care services due to an individual's inability to pay for services and assure that any fees or payments required by the center will be reduced to enable the center to fulfill this goal.

If you are an existing patient and would like to schedule an appointment, request dental records, ask a provider a question or check on your prescription you may access patient portal by emailing us at patientportal@MEHOP.org. Patient Portal is the new, easy way to access your medical information in a secure web format. Simply send us an email requesting access to your information and we will send you a unique pin number for your account.

If you have a dental question/concern that arises after normal business hours and are unable to wait until the following business day, you may contact our after hours on-call personnel at 979-318-9853. If you need to schedule/change an appointment you will need to call during normal business hours.
