Virginia Garcia Beaverton Dental Clinic Opens at The Round

The Round is thrilled to welcome our newest member to our community – Virginia Garcia Beaverton Dental Clinic!

19-virginia-garcia-Flyer-1-13-14-(1) At its dental clinics, Virginia Garcia focuses primarily on providing dental care to children, with or without insurance, up to age 21. The new Beaverton Dental Clinic will allow Virginia Garcia to expand access to quality dental care and provide improved services to a young, growing population as Beaverton is the only location where Virginia Garcia provides health care services that does not currently include a dental clinic.

The Beaverton Dental Clinic will serve over an estimated 2,500 patients each year. The new clinic will open in March 2014 at The Round, across from the Beaverton Central MAX Station. The clinic will have two dentists and a part-time hygienist.

Regular dental care and cleaning help promote overall health and prevent future visits to the emergency room. The new dental clinic will help accommodate increased demand for dental care as provisions of the Affordable Care Act open up access to health insurance coverage and Oregon undergoes Medicaid eligibility expansion.
