In 2009, access to dental services was identified as
the number one social service need in Pinellas County.
In 2011, united with a shared vision for providing affordable dental services, The Salvation Army, Clearwater Free Clinic and Arc of Tampa Bay collaborated to establish the Community Dental Clinic.
In 2013, the clinic opened its doors to the community - supported by the donations of gracious individuals, foundations and organizations, and the commitment of our dedicated dental and non-dental volunteers.
Our clinic is an independent nonprofit organization.
We offer urgent dental care and primary dental services including
exams/x-rays, cleanings, fillings and extractions
for adults in our community who do not have dental insurance
or the financial resources to access the care they desperately need.
Without access to care, treatable dental issues can lead to serious overall health problems. Our goal is to improve the dental health and
quality of life of our patients, reduce the number of missed work days,
and preclude unnecessary ER visits.
Dental health means more than pretty smiles.
Studies link poor oral health to heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, arthritis, sepsis, cancer, Alzheimers and more.
More than 100,000 people in Pinellas County live near the poverty line and have no dental insurance. We can help them.
"I am very appreciative for the clinic accepting me as a client, and for the courtesy and warmth shown me by the staff.
And the doctors are great - thankyou."
"I look forward to coming to the clinic for my dental care. All the employees are very nice and helpful and treat me with respect."
"I am so glad to get in to see the dentist, and am so glad for all the help."
"I LOVE you all for the tremendous sacrifices and services Community Dental Clinic has made for myself and folks truly in need. Dental work can make a world of difference when looking for work and how you are perceived by others. These are TOP NOTCH dentists and hygenists walking the walk. God bless you all and thank you!"
CDC has helped us so much. We are so grateful this place exists, it has been a God send for us who have no insurance. The care we have received is the best, and so is the entire staff - from the people who greet you, to the gracious staff and dentists who volunteer their time and talent to work on us. We are grateful and thankful CDC is here.

I love coming here because they did quality dental work on me that gave me my confidence back! The staff and dentist were very professional and nice. I'm so glad that they are in this community for people who just can't afford to go anywhere else. Thank God for Community Dental.
