The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) maintains a statewide network of dentists who have indicated they will provide oral-dental treatment to individuals with special health care needs. You can access this network through the following link: http://www.handsonhealth-sc.org/dental/.
One of the many attributes of this link is the user's ability to indicate specific variables about the individual seeking dental care, such as type of disability, age, and insurance status. The network is maintained by Dr. Carlos Salinas whose mission is to eliminate oral health disparities and increase the quality of life for individuals with special health care needs, particularly those of low income and minority groups. We hope you find this website helpful as you help to increase access to dental care for people you work with.
