FAQs

Can I still receive dental care, even if I am not a DHC medical patient?

Yes. You do not need to be a medical patient to receive dental care.

What if I need to see a specialist?

DHC providers refer patients to specialists.  After receiving the referral, it is your responsibility to make future contact with the Specialist along with payment for their services.

What if I can’t afford my prescriptions?

If you cannot afford your medications, please ask our staff about different assistance programs that may be available.  We offer a Prescription Assistance Program for those without prescription coverage who meet the income guidelines.

How can I obtain a copy of my medical records?

To obtain medical records, a Release of Information form must be completed by the patient.  Fees may be assessed depending on the number of pages requested.

What if I can't make my scheduled appointment?

Please notify the clinic at least 24 hours prior to the appointment.
