State legislators visiting Lowell recently heard from local leaders about the challenges their agencies faced during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic and how the state can help with recovery. Lowell Community Health Center Executive Director Susan Levine spoke about her team’s quick response when the lockdown hit in March 2020. “During the pandemic, our team stepped up under extraordinary circumstances. Within 48 hours of the lockdown we had a virtual appointment system up and running.”
Oral health is crucial to overall health. Through the newly created Smiles4Families Fund, Lowell Community Health Center is seeking to ensure that every Lowell CHC patient has access to the dental care they need, regardless of ability to pay. Why did we create the Smiles4Familes Fund? Because we believe everyone deserves a happy, healthy smile. Dental care is expensive. Insurance can help, but only so much. Smiles4Families will help make up the difference by paying for essential dental care our patients need to smile with confidence.
“We literally have patients tell us, ‘I feel human again,’” shares Dental Director Dr. Samantha Jordan, describing the life-changing impact of quality dental care.
