Adult Volunteer Dental Clinic - The clinic was established in June 1994 through the combined efforts of the Brevard County Dental Society, the Brevard County Board of County Commissioners, the Brevard County Health Department and the Florida Department of Health, with an annually-reviewed contract.
The vast majority of the volunteer dentists are members of the Brevard County Dental Society who donate their time. Many dentists, hygienists, assistants, dental supply companies and other organizations have donated time, instruments, equipment and supplies.
The purpose of the program is to provide limited dental services to low-income adults without other access to dental care. Services provided are primarily the diagnosis and treatment of acute dental pain. This includes x-rays, evaluation of the patient's major complaint and extractions. Clinics are held two to three times a week. The clinics are located at the Titusville, Viera and Melbourne Health Department.
Needy individuals must be at least 18 years of age at or below 100% base poverty level as set by the Federal Government.
