CHI St. Joseph Children’s Health Dental Center Now Open and Offering Care for all Lancaster County Children

CHI St. Joseph Children’s Health, a community-based organization dedicated to the health and wellbeing of children in Lancaster County, is proud to announce the opening of the CHI St. Joseph Children’s Health Dental Center in Columbia, Pennsylvania. The new Dental Center is focused on expanding access to care for families who face challenges such as long new patient wait lists, acceptance of limited insurance plans, limited hours or financial demands.

“Many Lancaster County families find it difficult to access dental care for their children and that shouldn’t be the case,” said Philip Goropoulos, president of CHI St. Joseph Children’s Health. “We’re offering a true dental home for children in our community by working hand-in-hand with these families.”

While many insurance plans are accepted at the CHI St. Joseph Children’s Health Dental Center, no insurance is necessary for care. Center patients who qualify can also benefit from the St. Joseph Access Plan which provides uninsured families with generous discounts on dental care based upon household income.

“Over 19,000 children in Lancaster County have never had a dental check-up1,” said Goropoulos. “The search for a true dental home for children should begin as soon as a child’s first tooth appears. We’re providing quality, compassionate care that is focused on making that a reality for more Lancaster families.”

The CHI St. Joseph Children’s Health Dental Center is located at 401 Locust Street in Columbia and serves patients throughout Lancaster County. CHIP, Medicaid and private insurance are accepted but no insurance is required to receive service. Interested families should call 844-836-8871 for more information about CHI St. Joseph Children’s Health Dental Center or visit www.CHIDentalCenter.org.
