We believe access to dental care is a key component of primary health services. In most cases, tooth decay and gum disease can be prevented with proper care and treatment. Many low-income families do not have health coverage for dental care nor the means to pay for it. Through dental initiatives the Community Health Centers of Benton and Linn Counties (CHCBLC) applied for funding to help meet the needs in our communities. In addition, the CHCBLC has partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of Corvallis to provide dental services to children and pregnant women.
