ECMC Opens New Center for Dental Care
Facility located at People Inc. Health Services Building on Hertel Avenue
BUFFALO, NY—Erie County Medical Center today announced that the new ECMC Center for Dental Care will open on Monday, March 13th at the People Inc. Health Services Building on Hertel Avenue in North Buffalo.
Maureen Sullivan DDS, Chief of ECMC’s Department of Dentistry said, “Our brand new location offers access to all the same excellent dental care services provided at our Grider Street location and free, convenient parking. Additionally, the new dental office was built with advanced equipment to support the complex dental health of special needs patients, from throughout Western New York. This practice will provide adult and pediatric dental care to the local community as well. We look forward to continuing to provide high-quality dentistry to patients at either our new location at 800 Hertel Avenue or at the ECMC Dental Center on the ECMC Campus.”
ECMC’s Department of Dentistry’s Division of Outpatient General Dentistry provides general (primary) dental health services for adults and their families. The Division is the only large, accredited hospital-based dental residency program in Western New York. Identical to ECMC’s existing outpatient general dentistry service on its Grider Street Health Campus, this new Center for Dental Care provides patients with access to dental care regardless of their insurance coverage including “straight” Medicaid, Medicaid managed care, FAP, DFAP and self-pay.
