Barnabas Center was recently awarded two grants supporting their Dental Program: the Delta Dental Community Care Foundation grant for $20,000 and Florida Dental Association 2022 Project: Dentists Care grant for $4,000. The grants will support Barnabas patients with the purchase of much-needed dental supplies for their clinics.
The Barnabas dental program provides affordable dental services for low- to moderate-income adults living in Nassau County, who have no health insurance, and includes exams, extractions, cleanings and more. Last year, the clinic was able to serve 506 patients through 1,848 visits out of their Fernandina Beach office and their satellite office in Hilliard.
When asked about this funding, Jamie Reynolds, Barnabas president and CEO said, “We are grateful for our community who supports our dental program and the partners, like Delta Dental Community Care Foundation and the Florida Dental Association, who invest in our community. We are smiling too!”
