Cahaba Valley Health Care is a nonprofit organization based in central Alabama dedicated to providing access to quality healthcare for the undeserved, primarily Hispanic, communities in Jefferson and Shelby Counties.
We serve Jefferson and Shelby County Residents. We primarily serve Hispanics, but will see anyone regardless of race, age, sex, or religion.
The dental clinics are held in our dental offices located. We see an average of 15 patients per clinic. These patients have been previously identified from a screening as those most in need of further care. The clinics are staffed by volunteers. At the clinics, patients may receive: extractions, X-rays, fillings, and cleanings. X-rays are done by our state-of-the-art digital X-ray system that was purchased through a United Way of Central Alabama grant.
We began offering dental screenings on December 7, 2003 performed by volunteer dentists licensed to practice in the state of Alabama. We also provide interpreters at our referral clinics. At the clinics patients may receive fillings, X-rays, extractions, and cleanings.
