Mission Statement

Our Vision

A community where everyone has access to dental care.

Our Mission

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

Our Goals

  • To improve and maintain the oral health of our patients,
  • To provide oral health education, and
  • To link patients with other community resources -- like medical and behavioral health services, housing and food assistance, and career guidance-- to enhance their lives.

Description

HealthLink’s dental program currently operates with three dental suites with x-ray machines, high speed autoclave, prepackaged instruments, hand tools, compressor, and dental supplies. With the transition to providing solely dental care, the clinic intends to expand the dental operation as the need and patient population grows.

In 2014, the dental clinic provided 784 dental hygiene appointments, 484 fillings and tooth restorations, and 181 exams for new patients.

The small staff was aided by the help of more than 60 volunteers donating 5,243 hours of their time to support HealthLink’s mission.

The newly expanded dental clinic at HealthLink will provide a variety of dental services to eligible patients. To qualify for free care, adults must: live in Bucks or Montgomery counties, be currently employed, and have a household income of less than 250% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. (A single person living alone would qualify if they earn less than $29,425 per year.) Proof of meeting these requirements is required at your first appointment.

Would you recommend HealthLink Dental Clinic?

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.
