Hampton Roads Dental Center at Chesapeake Care

Patients who qualify financially and live in one of the Hampton Roads cities (Portsmouth, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Suffolk, Hampton and Newport News) are seen BY APPOINTMENT ONLY in our dental clinic. We do not accept walk-ins. Our Clinic offers services to those who qualify by our eligibility requirements. There is a minimal administrative fee charged to each patient.

For patients wishing to have a cleaning or restorations, a comprehensive dental exam must be completed first. This establishes a treatment plan.

Dental services are provided by volunteer dentists. Students from the VCU School of Dentistry and the ODU School of Dental Hygiene expand the available services working under the supervision of the volunteer dentists.

For inquiries about Chesapeake Care dental services, please e-mail Marlaena Horn, Eligibility Coordinator or call 757-545-5700, Ext. 5004

"When I started volunteering here 1992 I realized that if you have a toothache, your only option is the emergency room where you will be offered pain medicine. This will not solve the problem. We're here to solve the problem."
