Pediatric Dental Clinic Opens Next Month In Century

September 23, 2016

Pediatric dental services will be available in Century beginning next month.

Escambia Community Clinics will open their new ECC Century Pediatric Dental Clinic at 501 Church Street on October 10.

The clinic will provide important oral health care services for children 0 to 20 years of age, and will provide dental exams, dental x-rays, dental cleanings/dental hygiene, dental extractions, fillings and tooth restorations, dental sealants and fluoride varnish, and oral health education.

The ECC Century Pediatric Dental Clinic is now accepting calls for appointments Monday through Friday during business hours at (850) 724-4054. The child-friendly clinic will be open every Monday and Tuesday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Once open, same day appointments may be available, depending on clinic schedule.

ECC said all children should see the dentist for a dental exam by the time they are 1 year old to help them start off a lifetime of healthy teeth, and tooth brushing should begin by the time the first baby tooth erupts.

ECC Century Pediatric Dental Clinic accepts children covered by Florida Medicaid ages 0-20, children with DentaQuest dental insurance, children with no insurance (parents must complete ECC financial eligibility paperwork and receive approval for ECC charity/sliding fee program), and the clinic also accepts some private dental insurances.

Organizers said Escambia Community Clinics plans to add a medical clinic at the same Century location in early 2017 as well as a pediatric medical site in the old Winn Dixie in Cantonment.

Since 1992, the mission of Escambia Community Clinics  has been to provide comprehensive primary and preventive health care to the citizens of Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties and surrounding areas, with a special focus on access to care for the under-insured, uninsured, working poor and medically needy. ECC currently provides a wide range of services for both children and adults at eleven locations in Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties. During 2015, ECC provided over 98,500 patient visits to 32,622 individuals.

ECC locations include a satellite medical location at 748 Highway 29 in Cantonment.
