The Ben Massell Dental Clinic is the only dental clinic in Georgia to be fully staffed by volunteer dentists and that offers comprehensive care in every specialty:
- oral surgery
- orthodontics (children only)
Aside from dental issues, clients often arrive at the clinic with life and health issues brought on by poverty, joblessness, homelessness, diabetes, HIV-AIDS, drug abuse and more. A full-time social worker on the clinic staff provides crucial case management and referral services to Ben Massell clients.
In addition, the clinic works in conjunction with other organizations to expand our services beyond dental. Thanks to a collaboration with Saint Joseph’s Mercy Care Services, clients can receive general health screenings for such conditions as heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. And through Georgia Lions Lighthouse, patients have access to free eye exams and glasses.
