Norwalk Community Health opens dental clinic

NORWALK, Conn. — Area politicians joined Norwalk Community Health Center leaders Wednesday to celebrate the opening of the center’s new Medical Mobile Unit and Dental Suite.

“The Dental Suite is projected to serve more than 500 low-income children and adults in just its first year,” a press release from U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) said.

“Providing dentistry and dental hygiene, regardless of ability to pay, the new dental care team joins NCHC’s established patient-centered medical home of adult, pediatric, women’s and behavioral health clinicians at 120 Connecticut Avenue, Norwalk, CT 06854,” a press release from the center said.

“Norwalk Community Health Center is an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit and Federally Qualified Health Center. Since 1999, NCHC has been committed to meeting the health care needs of everyone in our community who needs our services, regardless of ability to pay,” the press release said. “The nonprofit healthcare provider currently serves nearly 14,000 unduplicated patients at NCHC’s120 Connecticut Avenue location and aboard its Medical Mobile Unit that travels to Open Door Shelter, Norwalk Community College, Family & Children’s Agency and public housing sites Norwalk and Westport.”

That Health Center does not even have enough parking spaces for the clients that it currently serves. The money would have been better spent on creating more parking spaces!
