What makes your practice special when compared with others in the area?

Families First Dental Center is located within a community health center, where in addition to dental care our patients have access to primary care, prenatal care, counseling, health education, parenting classes and family programs. Free child care is available during appointments (advance signup required). We offer a sliding fee scale for patients who are uninsured. (We also accept private insurance, as well as New Hampshire and Maine Medicaid.) Due to high demand for dental services in the Seacoast and limited funding, eligibility to use the center is limited. Families First Dental Center is open to: -- Children and teens living in Seacoast New Hampshire or Southern Maine. Children and teens do NOT need to be primary-care patients at Families First in order to use the Dental Center. (Click for enrollment info.) -- Established primary-care patients of Families First Health Center -- Seniors (65+) and Veterans living in Portsmouth, Greenland, Rye, Kittery, Newington, Hampton or North Hampton

What are you and your team proud of at your practice?

The integration of dental care with primary care and other services is not only more convenient for patients, but promotes a higher quality of care because medical and dental providers confer to treat the "whole person."
