Services began January 15, 2004, with volunteer area dentists working with VCU dental and hygiene students two days per week. (For the two years previous, the Clinic had rented space at MCV for patients in critical need of oral surgery, and arranged for their transportation to Richmond.)

With a waiting list of 500, the overwhelming need was readily apparent.

Today, services are offered 3 ½ days per week out of a state-of-the-art facility. Digital dental equipment and practice management software were installed in 2013.
A staff dentist, volunteer dentists and VCU students provide the services.

The $1 million mark in dental care was reached in a little over two years of part-time operations. Through 2013, the Dental Clinic has hosted 27,172 patient visits and provided $16,658,348 in services.


Procedures are conducted Wednesdays through Fridays, and some Mondays.

Facilities include:

Six operatories • Lab room • Conference room
Panorex machine • Darkroom • Administrative room


General hours
at Kilmarnock facility
Wednesdays and Fridays, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Medical Clinic




Services include:

Oral exams • Amalgams • Root canals
X-rays • Restorations • Sealants
Extractions • Crowns • Dentures

Through a partnership with the VCU School of Dentistry, dental and hygiene students rotate through three days per week, working with dentists from the area who volunteer their services. The arrangement allows for hands-on experience for the students, providing a learning lab along with the opportunity of seeing more patients in the six dental stations.

An agreement was reached with the Boys and Girls Club in 2012 to introduce youth to good oral hygiene habits and to begin treatment plans as needed for members.
