Dr. Richard M. Madore Dental Clinic
Quality dental care is hard to come by in Centre County, even if you have insurance. Many of Centre Volunteers in Medicine dental patients have not been able to obtain or afford dental care for years, causing poor oral health. At our dental clinic, we care for patients who have no insurance. The dental services we offer include:
- Emergency Evaluations for those experiencing pain or swelling
- Tooth Extractions
- Restorative Dental Care
- Basic Dental Hygiene Cleanings
- Specialty & Diagnostic Referrals
CVIM does not provide:
- Cosmetic Dentistry
- Dentures (However, we may be able to help obtain funding for dentures.)
- Bridges or Crowns
Please note that if you have a dental emergency, do not hesitate, call CVIM at (814) 231-4043.
Richard M. Madore Dental Clinic Campaign
It is a little-known fact that dental disease and poor dental health can cause major complications and illnesses, even death. Early diagnosis, preventative treatment, and early intervention will prevent or halt the progress of most oral diseases.
The Dr. Richard M. Madore Dental Clinic at CVIM honors the spirit and legacy of one individual’s dedication to give back to his community. In 2017, Chuck Herlocher, because of his belief in what we are doing for our dental patients at CVIM, matched dollar for dollar, up to $10,000, for donations received during the 2017 Richard M. Madore Dental Clinic Campaign. If you’d like to donate to us, visit our donations page.
A Thankful Patient: Andrew’s Story
Andrew came to Centre Volunteers in Medicine as a new patient who hadn’t seen a dentist in over 10 years. He was very anxious and eventually explained to us that he had a traumatic experience with a dentist. He was in a lot of pain from a piece of a needle that had been left embedded in his mouth.
After a few visits to talk with him about his dental treatment and do extensive restorative work, he began to trust the dental professionals. His new appearance allowed him to smile more and gave him the confidence to apply for jobs. Andrew is very happy and cannot stop thanking the dental volunteers and staff for fixing his teeth, helping him cope with his fears, and giving him the education to move toward a lifetime of good oral health.
