Chesapeake Health Care’s Dental Department has locations in Princess Anne and Salisbury. It was established to provide high-quality dental care for our entire community. We serve people of all ages and income levels, those insured, underinsured, and uninsured. We accept Medicaid and most insurances. Chesapeake Health Care provides dental services to residents of Wicomico, Worcester, and Somerset counties. We offer comprehensive dental services with a 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 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,
In addition, the Department of Dentistry has a vibrant Division of Continuing Dental Education which sponsors continuing education courses for local and internationally trained dentists.
