April Declared "Bucks County Oral Health Month" by Commissioners
Recognizing the importance of both good oral health for Bucks County residents and the vital role that HealthLink Dental Clinic plays in ensuring that this is available to everyone in the community regardless of income level, the Bucks County Commissioners proclaimed April 2015 as “Bucks County Oral Health Month” during their business meeting on Wednesday morning at Synergis Technologies in Quakertown.
The proclamation came at the same time that HealthLink made that strategic decision to focus its future efforts and resources solely on providing dental care to low wage-earning adults. Boasting a new name, logo, mission, and website, HealthLink Dental Clinic is open and accepting patients who are eligible for its free dental care.
The newly expanded dental clinic at HealthLink will provide a variety of dental services including oral exams, fillings, x-rays, simple extractions, dental hygiene appointments, and patient education. To qualify for free care, adults must: live in Bucks or Montgomery counties, be currently employed, and have a household income of less than 250% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. (A single person living alone would qualify if they earn less than $29,425
