General Information
Description of ServiceThe H.J. Heinz campus Healthcare for the Homeless Veterans Dental Program provides an emergency dental clinic for eligible veterans. Non-eligible veterans and veterans without dental insurance experiencing an emergency can be seen for $487.00 fee. The fee can be billed.

Dental problems, such as pain and/or missing teeth can be tremendous barriers in seeking and obtaining employment. Studies have shown that after dental care, Veterans report significant improvement in perceived oral health, general health and overall self-esteem, thus, supporting the notion that dental care is an important aspect of the overall concept of homeless rehabilitation.
