Open Wide: Dental Care for the Entire Family
Oral health is linked to overall health and well being. At CHP’s dental centers in Pittsfield, North Adams and Great Barrington, we offer comprehensive general dentistry for the entire family. Our dental health professionals deliver high-quality care using the latest digital imaging technology, and our state-of-the-art facilities ensure efficient service and processing of insurance claims. CHP accepts most all forms of insurance, including MassHealth, and offers a sliding fee scale for those who qualify. All patients are welcome, regardless of insurance status, immigration status or financial resources.
Prevention and Education
CHP ensures that all patients receive linguistically and culturally appropriate education with regard to oral hygiene and preventive care. All care is customized to each patient.
Pediatric Dental Care
Good oral hygiene begins with infancy–and with parent education. CHP is dedicated to providing parent-friendly information about pediatric oral health, and ensures quality care for infants and children of all ages. Our offices are child-friendly and our professional staff are thoroughly trained in all aspects of pediatric oral health care.
Prenatal & Infant Oral Health
Dental health and proper nutrition are both important for the expectant mothers and new infants. During pregnancy, changes in estrogen and progesterone levels can cause changes a mother’s oral health, which might require attention. For an infant, baby teeth begin to surface at about four months.
Oral Health Care for the Elderly
At CHP, we take special care to tend to the oral health needs of our elderly patients, and we are sensitive to those patients who are living on a fixed income.
Oral Cancer Screening: Fluorescence Visualization Technology
Our practices maintain a painless, non-invasive, oral mucosal examination system for the early detection of abnormal tissue.
Our office is entirely handicap accessible. We offer personalized assistance for handicapped patients, including special planning and management of treatment for patients with complex medical or physical needs. We take special care in making appointments that keep number and length of visits to a minimum.
