 Practice Information
Practice Description :

This FQHC offers Dental, Medical, Outreach, Counseling, 340B Pharmacy, and Marketplace assistance to its Patients. 

Dental

Serving the communities in Stephens, Shackelford, and Callahan counties, children and adults will receive high quality dental services from caring dentists. The dentists and dental staff understand what it takes to improve oral health in the communities we serve. We stand ready to provide emergency care, ongoing treatment, and education for patients that will help them to achieve great oral health and enable them to maintain that health for a lifetime.

What sets us apart is our focus on education concerning preventive measures patients can take that will reduce the risk of oral diseases including cavities. We don’t just treat the problems; we want to help you to be more aware of how to prevent them. (SERVICES OFFERED: Restorative Endodontics, Prosthodontics Teeth Whitening, Nitrous Oxide, Preventative Care, Patient Education)

Medical

We believe that it should be easy for you to access the health services you need for yourself and your family.  We pride ourselves on providing our patients with a full range of health care services on-site for health care that’s convenient and affordable. Walk-Ins are welcome and Same Day Appointments are available! (SERVICES OFFERED: Women's Health, Pediatric Care, PAP's, Well Woman Exams, Geriatric Care, Pediatric, Minor procedures and Immunizations)

Outreach

Our care and concern for a patient goes beyond just their physical health. We understand if you can’t afford health care, can’t pay for your basic utilities or don’t have enough to feed your children, that your personal world will be filled with stress which can lead to medical problems.

While we can’t help with all problems, our Case Managers attempt to find any resource that can provide our patients. Many times the help needed is just temporary, but it can make a big difference in a persons life. Our Outreach department is the heart and soul of our organization. 

Counseling

Our goal is to create a healthy mind, body and spirit. Our Behavioral Health services recognize that we as individuals, at times, encounter circumstances in our lives that may be challenging.

We help to re-direct thoughts and behaviors in a positive direction to enable our patients to achieve their goals. Counseling sessions are offered on an individual or family basis and group sessions are also available for patient convenience.

340B Pharmacy

The 340B program was established to provide qualifying patients with affordable prescription drugs. The program is available to certain types of safety net clinics/providers. It allows these providers to stretch the limited federal resources available to them and to offer a comprehensive list of prescriptions at significantly reduced prices.

Marketplace

If you need help understanding the new complex world of healthcare and the insurance marketplace, we have trained staff that can help you navigate this new uncertain world.

If you are interested in learning more, or if you have knowledge of an individual who may be seeking an excellent practice opportunity, please contact us.
