“It is wonderful to be able to provide dental care to our underserved and uninsured patients after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic,” said Dr. Robert Schreibman, Connecticut Foundation for Dental Outreach, Chair.   “CTMOM is happy to do everything we can to help improve the quality of life of those we serve. We are honored and very excited to partner with the UConn School of Dental Medicine. Their magnificent facilities will allow us to treat so many during this difficult time.”

The clinic provides a full range of dental services including exams, x-rays, cleanings, extractions, fillings, root canals on front teeth (limited), interim partial dentures (limited). Officials point out that oral health is inseparable from general health and can affect a person’s self-esteem, compromise their ability to work, attend school and lead a normal life.
