The Ben Massell Dental Clinic (BMDC) has provided the most advanced dental care available to Atlanta's neediest patients for the past century. The clinic has come a long way since it began as a general health clinic more than 100 years ago. With 7,900 square feet, 16 operatories, including 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 BMDC shines. Thanks to support and 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 2016, we delivered more than $4 million in services. The BMDC is one of the only charity dental providers in Atlanta to offer comprehensive dental services to individuals who are financially disadvantaged, including those HIV-positive.
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.
