Clinic Details:The Blue Ridge Mountains Health Project, better known as the Blue Ridge Free Dental Clinic, delivers comprehensive dental care to people who cannot otherwise afford these critically needed services. We restore lives - one tooth at a time. The Blue Ridge Mountains Health Project was formed in 2005 to create a permanent Free Dental Clinic. In 2013, the original space was renovated and used equipment was replaced with new, state-of-the-art equipment within six operatories. We serve low-income patients (at or below 200% of the poverty level) in Jackson, Macon, Swain and Transylvania counties with one Staff Dentist, 12 Volunteer Dentists, two Registered Dental Hygienists and two Dental Assistants. In 2016, donor and foundation support enabled the Clinic to upgrade its radiology and charting systems to digital technology. Since 2005, the Clinic has performed 57,500 dental procedures with a value exceeding $8,800,000. Limited financial resources are a barrier to dental care. Medicare does not provide any dental services and while Medicaid provides limited dental assistance, large portions of the needy population, particularly the working poor and elderly, do not qualify for that program. Based on 2010 US Census data and NC Medicaid enrollment, we estimate that over 17,000 people in our serviceable counties meet the financial qualifications of the Clinic. It is our hope that donations from the community will help stabilize our current efforts so that we may continue to: serve over 700 patients a year; offer continuity of care through patient treatment plans and restorative procedures; prevent dental disease through hygiene procedures; and, provide information on community resources to patients for their greater well-being.

Details: The Community Clinic of High Point (CCHP) was established in 1992 by a group of visionary leaders committed to providing access to healthcare for all members of our community. Their commitment led to the development of a clinic where uninsured and low-income residents of the greater High Point area could receive consistent medical care, medications, and education, regardless of their ability to pay. The first patient was seen on April 1, 1993. Since that time, the Community Clinic has provided over 100,000 patient visits to almost 20,000 members of our community. This legacy of care is possible because of the dedication and commitment of staff and volunteers, and the support of a generous community. Today, the clinic’s work upholds that legacy of providing health care to High Point’s uninsured, through five weekly clinics. Medical care, pharmacy services, lab services, and patient education are provided at CCHP, and we remain committed to our mission and core values. The Community Clinic of High Point sees patients Monday through Thursday, with an evening clinic on Thursday. Primary care is provided by CCHP’s volunteer providers, with specialty clinics for cardiology and rheumatology being held once each month. Additional specialty care is provided the CCHP’s community partners. The mission of CCHP is to provide quality acute care and chronic disease management for eligible adults, aged 18-64, who reside in Archdale, High Point, Jamestown, and Trinity and do not qualify for any form of government or private insurance.
