Friends, neighbors, and community members gathered at Hall Neighborhood House on July 29 to celebrate the grand opening of our on-site dental clinic! We were honored to welcome so many special guests, including Mayor Joseph Peter Ganim.
The ribbon cutting marked a big moment for our community as we added oral health care to our full suite of medical services available at our comprehensive community health center, Community Health at Hall.
According to the CDC, cavities are one of the most prevalent dental problems that impact people’s quality of life—and one in four adults currently has one! At the dental clinic, regular checkups, sealants, and education will help fight challenges like cavities and support our community’s overall health and well-being. We’ll teach dental hygiene to the youngest members of our community and address our oldest neighbors’ unique oral health needs.
The ribbon cutting was a celebration of new services that will save our neighbors time and money and, most importantly, increase access to health care in Bridgeport. We are grateful for the support of many community partners, including Impact Fairfield County, Delta Dental of New Jersey, Inc., and Brian Barker, who helped make the dental clinic possible.
See you soon for a cleaning!
