The Community DentCare Network provides patient-centered dental services to underserved populations in northern Manhattan. Its mission is to create a comprehensive dental delivery system for children, adults and senior citizens in need of affordable dental care.
Its primary focus is on preventive services and providing easy access to dental care. Additionally, it offers an improved framework for the education of dental and other health professional students at Columbia University's Health Sciences campus.
The network includes six school-based clinics and a Mobile Dental Center linked to five community-based practices located throughout Washington Heights/Inwood and Harlem.
