Dental

CrossOver has provided dental services as a standard component of our continuum of care since the founding of the organization in 1983. Many of CrossOver's patients present with severe dental complications such as tooth decay, gum disease, and facial pain.With the help of volunteer dentists and hygienists, our clinics offer dental cleanings, screenings, fillings, and extractions, and also provide dentures to those who require them. CrossOver's dental program also places great importance on oral health education, and the program collaborates with our primary care providers to help patients understand the connection between oral health and overall health.  The CrossOver Dental Program* provides cost effective care by utilizing volunteers to provide the majority of our dental services. CrossOver relies on the dedication of more than 20 volunteer dentists who provide more than 1,000 hours of service each year. With the help of our volunteers, the CrossOver Dental Program offers an array of dental services to our patients, including: Preventative: Cleanings, Patient education, Screenings Restorative: Fillings, Extractions Dentures CrossOver’s dental program collaborates with our pharmacists and primary care providers to help patients better understand the connection between oral health and their overall health. With the addition of electronic health records and digital radiography this integration is becoming more seamless than ever. The dental program has also initiated a new project, the Dental Referral Network, which allows staff to refer patients to external dental offices with dentists who are willing to provide pro bono care to our patients. *At this time, dental services are only available to CrossOver medical patients who have met eligibility requirements.
