Dental Health Center

The Faxton St. Luke’s Dental Health Center is dedicated to meeting the dental health needs of the Mohawk Valley’s underserved community members, as well as educating future dentists.

The Dental Health Center only accepts patients with traditional Medicaid and Fidelis coverage only.  At this time we do not participate with any other Medicaid Managed Care Programs or Child Health Plus (CHP) Insurance Programs.

As a teaching facility, the length of your appointments and overall treatment will likely take longer than it would from a private dentist. High standards are required of our resident dentists, and their work is continually being evaluated by our clinical faculty. This attention to detail requires more of your time, but assures you of quality dental care.

To inquire about making an appointment, please contact us at (315) 624-6227.

About the Care We Provide

Faxton St. Luke’s Dental Health Center provides a range of dental services, from preventive care to corrective procedures.

If you are a Medicaid recipient, please be aware that not all procedures are covered by Medicaid. Once accepted as a new patient, you should discuss all planned treatment with your assigned dentist so that Medicaid coverage can be determined before treatment begins.

Patients who are in need of emergency dental treatment because of severe ongoing pain, infection or swelling should contact our office for specific scheduling information. Since emergency patients are generally worked in between our regularly scheduled patients, longer waiting times can be expected.

Hours of Operation

Patient care is provided BY APPOINTMENT ONLY from 8:45am to 12:30pm and 1:15pm to 5pm, Monday through Friday. The Dental Health Center is closed on weekends and major holidays.

A receptionist is available between 9am and 11:30am or 1:30pm and 4pm to answer questions and schedule appointments.
