Mission Statement

To provide preventative and restorative dental services, along with oral health education, to contribute to the overall health of low wage-earning adults and veterans in Bucks and Montgomery Counties

Description

HealthLink provides free dental services to low-income, working adults and military veterans that would otherwise go without. We empower them to restore their oral health resulting in better overall health, more job opportunities, and healthier family health habits.

Our clinic provides services to adults (ages 18 and over) that are employed, live in Bucks County or Montgomery County (PA),do not have dental insurance, and have a household annual income at or below 250% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. HealthLink waives the employment requirement for local veterans. Our patients would not have access to dental care without us.

Dental services are provided on-site at HealthLink’s location at 1775 Street Road in Upper Southampton Township. In addition to oral hygiene exams, other primary dental care services available include: cleanings, x-rays, fillings, extractions, deep scaling, root canals, crowns, oral cancer screenings, and patient education.

Low-income adults who consider themselves "healthy" may not visit their doctor routinely, so they are not being screened for such things as diabetes and high blood pressure. However, through our "Connecting Oral Health & Overall Health" program, these screenings are performed at our clinic ensuring that patients are informed about their health. Because overall health is interconnected to oral health, we are proud to offer this service to further empower our patients to improve their health.

HealthLink is a fabulous organization that helps so many uninsured adults in the Philadelphia suburbs. I've been volunteering as a Marketing Consultant for many years. Prior to volunteering, I hadn't fully realized how many of my friends and neighbors needed their services. Although many of them are working, quite a few single parents and younger adults aren't insured. I've referred quite a few people to HealthLink because they had nowhere else to turn. I've also met people who've told me that they'd been treated at HealthLink in the past and were very appreciative. Some were afraid that they would not get high quality care, but soon learned that some of the most talented doctors, nurses and other health professionals in our area very generously donate their time to those in need so that those without insurance are able to get the same care as those who do. If you have the opportunity to volunteer for HealthLink or make a donation, please do!

The mission of Health Link, to offer free medical and dental to the working uninsured, is such a timely topic and one that touches so many lives that I feel passionate about doing what I can to support the. The day I volunteered I was one of 4-5 Health Link volunteers including the EX. Dir and the Dev. Dir. We had such fun. We not only were able to raise awareness and money for Health Link, but also got to know each other better.
