Southcentral Foundation (SCF) recently opened a dental clinic dedicated to serving the needs of Elder patients. The clinic, deemed by SCF a “dental home,” is located in a space adjacent to the SCF Elder Program in Anchorage’s Chugach Square Mall.
The new dental clinic is staffed by dentists, dental hygienists and dental assistants. “We are very pleased to announce the opening of the Chugach Square Dental Clinic for the Elders of our Native community,” said Dr. Kevin Gottlieb, SCF vice president of resource and development. “The goal is to reduce barriers and make it more convenient for Elders to have their general dental needs met.”
More than 1,000 Elders are enrolled in SCF’s Elder program, which offers a range of services from health screenings, classes, and meal services to beading and sewing circles at the Chugach Square Mall.
