You'll see a familiar and friendly face when you visit our registered dental hygienist, who is dedicated to helping you achieve a healthy smile. Services include cleanings, fluoride treatments, x-rays and sealants.
Dental Care Services
On your first visit, the dentist will examine your teeth and take x-rays, if needed. You and your dentist will decide on a treatment plan designed to keep your mouth as healthy as possible. This may include oral health education, routine fillings, extractions, bridges, dentures, and/or treatment of gum disease or tissue related diseases. We refer patients with more complex problems to the local hospitals
After the initial dental exam, you may choose to be placed on a recall schedule for teeth cleaning. You may also have your teeth evaluated by the dentist during the visit. Sometimes, you will see the dental hygienist before the dentist.
Emergencies and Walk-In Patients
Based on the severity of pain and availability of the dentist's schedule, the dental clinic may every attempt to see patients for emergency dental care. However, we encourage our patients to make regular appointments to see the dentist.
HIV Prevention and primary care: Services include HIV testing in a caring and confidential environment and emotional support provided by professional counselors who are on-site to help patients understand the test and the results.
The Anthony L. Jordan Health Center also offers treatment services and medications to help patients who are HIV positive manage their disease to maintain the best possible quality of life.
It also offers counseling, mental health services, chemical dependency services, case management, healthcare planning, family services, and support groups to address the complex array of issues associated with diagnosis.
Family medicine: Healthcare at the community level
Our community abounds with resources to help families handle a wide variety of issues. Unfortunately, many families in need never benefit from these resources because they are not aware of them. Family Medicine at the Anthony L. Jordan Health Center is dedicated to breaking this and other barriers between our patients and vital programs that could potentially enrich their lives and demonstrate to them that they are not alone in facing life’s challenges.
Gynecology: Maximize your health with routine exams
The Anthony L. Jordan Health Center recommends that women receive checkups once a year, which include a breast exam, and a pap test that screens for cervical cancer. ALJ offers follow up on birth control use and/or hormone therapy for menopausal patients. Experts in the department will determine if a patient needs more frequent screenings based on their personal history and/or HIV status. We also offer screenings and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), as well as HIV counseling.
