About PCHS

The PCHS mission is to expand access to high-quality care in a way that meets each patient's individual needs. PCHS has adopted a new model of team-based, collaborative, and intergrated care in which dentists, primary care providers, pharmacists, behavioral health clinicians, and administrative staff work closely together, sharing the same electronic health record and often working in close physical proximity to one another.

PCHS is an accredited Patient-Centered Dental HOm (PCDH) by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). PCHS is committed to providing effective dental health care services to all patients. Our new Dental Residency Training Program will provide comprehensive training in delivering excellent dental services and training with the latest technological equipment.

The program will provide the new dental resident experience working with a diverse population of paitents with varying needs for specialized care. Experienced providers will work side-by-side with residencts as they treat patients in the various outpatient health care settings at PCHS. Program staff will support residents in advancing their skills in delivering dental health care specific to the needs of each individual patient.
