Promise Community Health Center has a full dental care team including a local dentist, dental hygienist and several bilingual dental assistants. Fillings, dental sealants and teeth cleanings are just a few of the many services our northwest Iowa dental team offers. Oral health is an integral part of the primary health care provided at Promise.
Promise Community Health Center Dental Program accepts Medicaid Insurance.

For those without insurance, Promise offers a sliding-fee scale discount that greatly reduces the cost of appointments based on income and household size.

SAVING FOR SMILES DENTAL PROGRAM
Promise Community Health has several patients who simply cannot pay the co-pay fee for a dental appointment. Promise has a Saving for Smiles Dental Fund that is used to help kids and families pay this co-pay as well as get further dental care.
Promise partners with our local Kiwanis club as well as other local businesses and families who contribute to this fund to make dental care possibly for every child!
