Poisson Dental Facility: Providing dental care to the underserved
The Poisson Dental Facility has been improving the dental health of the underserved populations in the greater Manchester area since 1983. Preventative dental care is essential to the health of your teeth and gums. But, did you know that the health of your mouth, teeth and gums can affect your general health? Poor oral health and periodontal disease have been linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, respiratory disease and oral cancer.
Children and adults in the greater Manchester area without access to preventive dental care and treatment may receive a referral to the Poisson Dental Facility at Catholic Medical Center. Our goal is to reduce the number of complex and urgent dental work procedures resulting from the lack of preventative care and catch problems earlier to reduce complications later.
A Tradition of Caring
The family of Albert D. Poisson, a community leader and CMC trustee, established both the dental facility and the Albert D. Poisson Trust in his memory. Additional funding for the facility comes from Medicaid reimbursement, agency fees, state grant monies and donations.
Please note: The facility is not a walk-in clinic.
