Below is our 2014 dental and vision screening schedule, this is subject to change.
All Screenings Will Begin at 1:00 p.m. Unless Otherwise Noted
ALL DENTAL SCREENINGS ARE ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON according to the screening schedule. Clinic times vary after referral. The dental clinics are held in our dental offices. We see an average of 15 patients per clinic. These patients have been previously identified from a screening as those most in need of further care. At the clinics, patients may receive: extractions, X-rays, fillings, and cleanings. We also provide Saturday vision clinics at the Callahan Eye Foundation Hospital. Only patients identified at a screening as in need of further care are seen at the clinic. Those patients will receive a more comprehensive eye exam at the clinic.
