New Smiles4Families Fund

Give to the Smiles4Families Fund

Oral health is crucial to overall health. Through the newly created Smiles4Families Fund, Lowell Community Health Center is seeking to ensure that every Lowell CHC patient has access to the dental care they need, regardless of ability to pay. Why did we create the Smiles4Familes Fund? Because we believe everyone deserves a happy, healthy smile. Dental care is expensive. Insurance can help, but only so much. Smiles4Families will help make up the difference by paying for essential dental care our patients need to smile with confidence.

“We literally have patients tell us, ‘I feel human again,’” shares Dental Director Dr. Samantha Jordan, describing the life-changing impact of quality dental care.
