The Northern Virginia Dental Clinic is a private non-profit 501(c) (3) organization. It was established in 1994 by members of the Northern Virginia Dental Society who wanted to contribute a critically-needed service to the community while preserving the dignity of the underserved. A unique, public/private partnership between dental professionals, local governments and social service agencies was formed.
To determine the current state of oral health of each individual referred to the NVDC, develop a detailed treatment plan, and restore each individual to an infection free and functional state of oral health.
Additionally, we strive to educate each individual on the importance of maintaining good oral health, the effects of poor oral health on their overall health condition, and proper home care techniques.
The establishment of a health care dental facility in which volunteer dentists, dental hygienists, and auxiliaries can provide health care services for the indigent population of Northern Virginia.
