Thanks to support and funding from the West Orange Health Alliance, the West Orange Dental Alliance program has been launched. The “WODA” program targets the local hospitals and community centers who reside in the West Orange Healthcare District and who are at or below 100% of the poverty level. WODA is now making emergent dental care available to qualifying residents of the West Orange area, with a goal to keep residents who are without dental insurance or the means to afford dental care out of the ER.
With the support from our community, the West Orange Dental Alliance is able to coordinate with our caring local dental providers who have graciously volunteered to participate in this program. They serve the programs patients in their offices that helps create smiles that give hope and improve lives.
The program has most recently implemented a “Jump Start” Program aiming to reach patients to become “Restorable to Employable”. The goal is to offer dental restorations/treatment to bring the patient/job seeker back to a healthy smile so that they have the best possible chance to get a job or a better one at that.
