Dental Practice Extends Hours To Meet Patient Demands

Many working families say they’re often in a tough spot when it comes to making dental appointments for themselves and their children. It means missing work and even losing a day’s pay. With that in mind, Community Health of South Florida Inc. (CHI) hopes to ease those concerns by offering extended dental hours, a mobile unit and more.

Many of the other health centers even offer Saturday hours. In addition, Dr. Franscheska Ovalles who specializes in pediatric dentistry has joined the team.

CHI dentists are now able to come to you thanks to our state-of-the-art mobile dental unit. Already, dentists have provided checkups for the students at COPE South. Expect to see it rolling through your neighbourhood soon. “CHI has always been about ensuring that there are no barriers to healthcare. In keeping with that mission, our mobile dental unit will allow us into areas with hard to reach populations,” said

Dr. Robert Johnson, Director of Dental Services. “It’s a rewarding experience and we hope to continue to grow the program.” To make a dental appointment call (305) 252-4820.
