The University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry has announced a new pediatric clinic opening on Valleydale Road to serve patients with Medicaid and Alabama’s All Kids health insurance program. The new community clinic will also help to expand the School of Dentistry’s Give Kids a Smile event to a year-round offering.
The pediatric dentistry clinic offers a variety of services, such as cleanings, fillings and crowns. The clinic will be open on Tuesdays and will be able to service nearly 30 patients each day.
The clinic’s staff will include UAB dental professionals, graduate students, and students in their third and fourth years of dental education.
The clinic is an outgrowth of the school’s involvement with Cahaba Valley Healthcare, which provides dental services for disadvantaged adults in the Jefferson/North Shelby area. CVHS has a history of partnering with UAB, including in the Give Kids a Smile event. Because CVHS is only open on weekends for adults, the School of Dentistry decided that they should offer care for children during the week.
To make an appointment, call 975-1277. The address is 4515 Southlake Parkway, Suite 150.
