Get dental care

Good dental health is important for children and adults. If you take good care of your teeth and gums, you can prevent cavities, inflammation of gums, tooth loss, and bad breath.

Our dentists and other health professionals provide basic and emergency dental care to enrolled patients at seven of our City health centers. Dental services are not available at Strawberry Mansion Health Center.

Dental care is also available at many community health centers in Philadelphia.


Visit one of our seven City health centers that provide dental services. Walk-ins are accepted, but appointments are encouraged.


City health centers accept Medicare, Medicaid, HMO plans, and most other insurance options. If you don’t have insurance, the centers will charge a small fee based on family size and income. Health centers can also help you apply for affordable health insurance.
