Saving People’s Smiles Dental Center is a 501c3, nonprofit Corporation, which was established in May of 2010. Saving People’s Smiles (SPS) initials pay homage to the generous support and inspiration of St. Paul’s School class of 1978. SPS Dental Center is comprised of a network of fellow dentists and staff that are dedicated to helping others, by restoring oral health, one smile at a time.
Our centers’ mission is to provide comprehensive dental care devoted to public health and the underserved. We provide access to quality, compassionate, dental services at an affordable cost. We are a safety net for multiple organizations. We treat patients referred to us by state funded programs such as WIC, Transitional Housing, NH State Hospital, Urgent care facilities/Emergency departments, are just to name a few. The driving force is working towards eliminating disparities within our community based on income, disability, and/or economic status.
Our vision is to expand both our scope and reach of services. This will include more oral health care to more patients, offer educational and clinical opportunities for dentist, hygienists, dental assistants, and office personnel by taking part of an Ambassador initiative to transition all of the above be it short or long term. As well as to enhance our prevention outreach services.
Services We Provide:
- Education- We provide oral hygiene instructions and diet/nutrition counseling to our parents and children in the clinic, at local schools and health fairs.
- Prevention and Early Detection- Through oral screenings and fluoride treatments.
- Comprehensive Treatment- We provide a dental home that offers a full range of services including: exams, cleanings, x-rays, sealants, fillings, denture/partials, extractions and more.
