Dental (Oral) Services

Oral health is important for all ages. Today, more than ever, the oral-systemic link is becoming clearer to diagnosing and treating diseases of the oral cavity which have been proven detrimental to our patients' overall health and well-being. Researchers have proven an association of diseases in the oral cavity to Alzheimer's, heart disease, pre-term birth and other systemic and medical concerns. Prevention and education are the focus of care provided to the residents of Fulton County. Good oral health care is good overall health.

The Fulton County Board of Health offers oral health services to eligible children and adolescents from the time their first tooth erupts (grows in) as toddlers until they graduate from high school.
