YOUR HOME FOR HEALTHY GUMS AND SMILES
Oral health is essential to general health and well-being at every stage of life. Mouth and throat diseases, which can range from cavities to cancer, can cause pain and disability for millions of Americans each year.
Dental care is integrated as part of the primary care program that Care Resource offers. Oral health care is important because of the link between periodontal diseases, cardiovascular disease and other health conditions. In addition, Oral health problems can put strain on one’s immune system. In fact, some oral health problems may be a sign that one’s immune system is changing – which may require a visit to one of Care Resource’s Medical Clinicians.
Care Resource’s dedicated dentists, receptionists, clerks, dental care services supervisors and dental care services managers go the extra mile each day to be welcoming, thorough and compassionate as they improve dental health in our community. Our staff brings meaning to “healthcare from the heart”, every day.
Care Resource’s dental program continues to evolve as we continue to provide services to an ever increasing dental population.
“Since 2009, Care Resource’s Dental Department has grown into two offices (Midtown Miami and Fort Lauderdale locations), has acquired three dentists, a hygienist, a dental supervisor and six support staff. The scope of services has grown, along with the update and introduction of new equipment and materials. It is with this dedication and hard work that the Care Resource Dental Team in 2015 surpassed 6000 dental visits.” – Curtis Barnes, DMD, Dental Director, Care Resource
In 2016, the dental program brought onboard a new full time dentist, Dr. Amy Martinez. Dr. Martinez is seeing patients at the Miami office located on 3510 Biscayne Boulevard and the Fort Lauderdale office located on 871 West Oakland Park Boulevard.
