Rural Health Corporation of Northeastern Pennsylvania

DENTAL

We are a private, non-profit organization dedicated to serving the dental  needs of individuals and families.

We have 3 dental offices waiting to serve you.  2 in Luzerne County and 1 in Wyoming County.  Care is available to anyone requesting it, regardless of income.

We want new and existing patients to always feel welcome at our dental centers.  Patients are seen on an appointment basis.  Walk-ins and callers will only be seen if scheduling permits.  The best way to arrange an appointment is by phoning the center nearest to you.  Clicking on the buttons to the right will take you to the information page for the center in your area.   Our centers are open Monday through Friday.   Check individual centers for office hours.

Fees are charged for all of our services. Medicaid, most commercial insurances, as well as direct patient payment are accepted as reimbursement for care.  In addition we have a sliding fee program, based on income and family size,  that gives a discount to those who qualify.

Patients are required to pay for non-covered services, insurance deductibles and co-pays at the time of each visit.  In addition to cash; we accept American Express, Discover, Master Card and Visa.

By working together, we can continue to provide you and your family with the best care at the lowest possible price.

Transportation on a limited scheduled basis is available free of charge, when no  other means of transportation is available, to registered patients only, between their homes and the offices in Noxen, Freeland and Nuremberg.  Patients in need of transportation must request the service when the appointment is made.  Seating is limited, therefore we request that only the patient make use of this service.

RHC is governed by a voluntary, non-paid Board of Directors selected from the areas served by the health centers.  They ensure that the organization remains responsive to the needs of our patients.  They are responsible for establishing policies and overseeing the operations of RHC.
