We are seeking a dentist to join our caring, devoted team of dental professionals — dental assistants and hygienists — who provide excellent care to our patients. Families First uses an integrated electronic medical/dental record, which makes all patient health records available to the dental practice with the push of a button. We have three fully equipped operatories, a laboratory, and state of the art equipment such as panoramic, digital x-ray equipment and an inter-oral camera. Several dentists from the community volunteer at the center and offer support and guidance when needed. The practice currently has approximately 1,800 patients, most of whom are uninsured adults, or children who receive Medicaid benefits. The quality of patient care we provide, especially our ability to manage diseases in high-risk populations, is greatly enhanced by the integration of oral health with primary care.
The position is part time, including Fridays and Saturday mornings. Competitive salary.

– Hilary O’Neil, Outreach and Family Center Coordinator (since 2007)
I have great communication with my supervisor. And I get to help patients. Many patients are surprised when they come here that we really are here to help them. It makes you feel good. Staff are great to work with; we are like a family. We’re very busy, so the day goes by quickly. My ideas are heard and sometimes implemented. We all try to work as a team.
– Cheryl Mosley, Front Office Coordinator (since 2004)
I love that I get to spend as much time as a patient needs, as often as they need, to help them understand and cope with their diabetes. I love my colleagues, who inspire me to do the best I can for every patient, without judgment. I love that we look at a patient’s insurance status only to figure out how to help them, not to determine whether we will help them.
