Will be open Monday through Friday
LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 26, 2016) — The new University of Kentucky Dentistry West Regional Clinic in Benton held a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday. The new general dentistry clinic, located in the Marshall County Health Department, will open in early June.
“The opening of the UK Dentistry West Regional Clinic marks the culmination of a lot of people working toward achieving a common goal,” said Laura Hawes-Hammons, director of the Marshall County Health Department. “The clinic is going to be so wonderful for this county and the people in the surrounding area.”
The Marshall County Health Department dedicated the wing of the dental clinic to former Marshall County Judge-Executive Mike Miller to honor his memory for his dedication to improving the oral health of Marshall County residents.
The West Regional Clinic will offer comprehensive general dentistry, including:
- Preventive services (cleanings, sealants, x-rays, and diagnostic exams)
- Restorative services (fillings and crowns)
- Endodontic treatment (root canals)
- Prosthodontic services (dentures, partials, and bridges)
- Sedation for certain procedures
“UK Dentistry is focused on improving the oral health of Kentuckians. We are really looking forward to our partnership with the Marshall County Health Department and working toward making Marshall County a cavity-free county,” said Dr. Ted Raybould, chief of the UK Dentistry Division of Adult, Pediatric and Public Health.
The clinic will begin seeing patients in June, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Medicaid and several other dental insurance plans will be accepted. More information is available online at ukdentistry.org/west.
