Ohio health system relocates dental services to increase accessibility

Cleveland-based MetroHealth relocated its dental services to an off-campus clinic July 1 after more than 60 years to make their services more accessible to residents.

The Ohio City Family Dentistry serves adults and children and provides multiple services, including routine checkups and cleanings, X-rays, root canals, bridges, partial dentures and crowns.

The new location is convenient for residents who will no longer have to travel to MetroHealth's main campus and can get to the new clinic via public transportation. Services will also be open to residents in the neighborhood who previously did not have access to them.

Additionally, the clinic is supplied with updated technology to improve services and nitrous oxide to ease patients experiencing pain and anxiety. The health system will also offer its dental residency program at the new clinic, with two pediatric residents working at the clinic in partnership with Cleveland-based Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine.

MetroHealth, which serves 300,000 patients, bought the site of the clinic in 2016 for approximately $1.17 million.
