About the Ben Massell Dental Clinic
The Ben Massell Dental Clinic (BMDC) has provided the most advanced dental care available to Atlanta's neediest patients for most of the past century. The clinic has come a long way since it began as a general health clinic 100 years ago. With 7,900 square feet, 15 operatories, two hygiene rooms and the latest state-of-the-art technology in dental equipment, we serve thousands of patients each year, and demand is growing.
Technology is truly where the BMDC shines. Thanks to in-kind donations from generous dental manufacturers, the clinic rivals most private dental offices around the country.
More than 200,000 people in the 12-county Atlanta area need and qualify for the Clinic’s services. In fiscal year 2011, we delivered nearly $2.5 million in services. The BMDC is one of the only charity dental providers in Atlanta to offer comprehensive dental services to HIV-positive individuals who are financially disadvantaged.
In 2009, the clinic became Atlanta's first LEED Gold-certified healthcare facility. The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification system is the nation’s pre-eminent program for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.
