“I couldn’t even breathe through my mouth. The air going over my teeth was excruciating pain. The ER sent me here".
“She (Dr. Tran, CDC Dental Director) was great. Very fast and easy and when she was done I was like ‘wow, already’! She knew what she was doing.”
“Every weekend now my kids and I are out doing something,” Brandi said. “And I feel like I am able to do that because I am not in pain.”
“They really made a big difference for me as far as helping me, “I was in a lot of pain.”
“She’s (Dr. Tran, CDC Dental Director) amazing—she’s the best dentist I’ve ever come across, she’s unbelievable.”
“I made an appointment right away. I went down there and was so excited.”
“A smile is important for the ones around me. It makes me more confident and speak better, pronounce my words better and communicate.”
“I’m so glad they (CDC) were there for me and helped show me the way…I am so thankful.”
“Not only was it free, they (CDC) did high quality work with minimal pain and super nice people--very kind and gentle.”
“They quelled my fears that’s for sure. They are nicest most professional people.”
“I’m very appreciative, It’s still hard for me to believe this place is a real place.”
“They did some cleaning, one extraction and filled some cavities. Everybody’s been real good to me over there. I told them I was extra sensitive, so they are extra careful with me.”
“Everybody’s been real good to me, I feel like I’m the Six Million Dollar Man."
“I had no idea. I didn’t know this was a free (dental) clinic,” I just bursted into tears.”
“It’s been great. People are so scared of the dentist, but it’s been awesome.”
“Dental care is so expensive and when you have three children you are the last one, I couldn’t be more grateful.”
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.
We are open: Monday - Thursday 8:30 am - 4:30 pm (Fridays 8:00 am - noon as volunteer dentists are available)
