The Chesapeake Health Care Dental Department has locations in Princess Anne and Salisbury, and was established to provide dental care for our entire community. We serve people of all ages, income levels, those insured, under-insured and uninsured. Chesapeake Health Care provides dental services to residents of Wicomico, Worcester, and Somerset counties. We offer comprehensive dental services with special emphasis on prevention and restoration. Our Department of Dentistry is, by far, the largest provider of dental services to adults and children on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

With a commitment to patient care, advocacy, research and education, our Dental Department serves as the clinical training site for accredited advanced education programs in Pediatric Dentistry and Advanced Education in General Dentistry, in partnership with NYU Langone Medical Center.

Together with active clinical programs, the Department of Dentistry has active patient outreach programs in the schools of Somerset, Wicomico and Worcester Counties that screen, offer preventive services and case management leading to treatment for children and expectant mothers,
