Mid-State Health Center of Plymouth and Bristol, NH Brings Dental Services to their Bristol Office

Jul 6, 2015 | Events, News

Bristol, NH – Mid-State Health Center is excited to announce it is now offering dental services in its Bristol office at 100 Robie Road. The dental services are offered in addition to the medical, behavioral health and laboratory services already offered at the new Bristol facility which opened last summer. The dental program is led by Mid-State’s Dental Director, Dr. Kelly Perry. She along with her team of two dental hygienists and two dental assistants are ready to accept new patients of all ages.

The Mid-State Dental Program focuses on improved access to dental care in the region. Although many people have an established relationship with a dentist, there are many community members who do not have a dentist and will benefit from receiving care at Mid-State. Mid-State’s dental program offers high- quality preventive and restorative dental services in a comfortable environment. Mid-State sees all patients regardless of their ability to pay whether they are an existing Mid-State patient or not and accepts most dental insurances including Medicaid and Medicare (limited). For those who are uninsured and qualify based on income, Mid-State also provides a sliding-fee-scale discount.

Mid-State believes these services ensure Bristol and the surrounding region will have affordable, high-quality health care for years to come. Mid-State is committed to promoting access to primary health care services in a delivery model which improves both the community’s health and wellness and supports the economy at the same time.

Sharon Beaty, Mid-State’s CEO shared, “the addition of dental services to Bristol supports Mid-State’s goal to treat the whole person in a personalized patient experience where care is coordinated among all the patient’s providers”.

The launch of dental services in the Bristol location was made possible through the commitment and collaboration of many supporters. Supporters include the US Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resource Service Administration; Dr. David Bogacz, DMD; the New Hampshire Department of Health, Division of Public Health Services, Oral Health Program; Bi-State Primary Care Association; and Speare Memorial Hospital.

Mid-State is accepting new medical and dental patients of all ages and encourages anyone interested in learning more about Mid-State’s clinical team and its services to visit them on the web at www.midstatehealth.org. The website offers a wealth of information including biographies of the care team, a complete list of services available to patients, and a variety of health and wellness education tools and resources.
