***NC Medicaid and NC Health Choice have adopted a new electronic insurance system on a statewide level. Unfortunately, the new statewide system is temporarily unable to provide pre-treatment approval for insurance coverage of some Medicaid and Health Choice services.
In order to prevent fees to our patients, we are currently delaying these treatment services, including: full dentures, partial dentures, deep cleaning (scaling and root planing), certain surgical extractions, denture relines, and some types of oral surgery (alveoloplasty and frenulectomy). We regret that this may inconvenience some of our patients, and we have been told that Medicaid/Healthchoice is working hard to resolve these technical problems as soon as possible.***

Mission and Goal
The expanded mission of the Wilkes Public Dental Clinic is to serve the unserved and underserved children and adults of Wilkes (and the surrounding region on a space available basis) in need of dental care. We will accept Medicaid, Health Choice, Vocational Rehab, BROC Head Start, private insurance, and self-pay patients. A sliding fee scale will be applied for self-pay patients.
The goal of the Wilkes Public Health Dental Clinic is to provide a private practice setting that makes our patients feel special and well cared for in a clinical environment. We want our children and adults to be pleased with the public health choice they have in Wilkes.
