NFB Dental Clinic

Our Dental Clinic began as a temporary endeavor in May 2001 to treat the uninsured elderly, disabled and working poor in our community relying entirely on volunteer dentists who were willing to see the patients in their office.

However, in August 2005, as the result of generous donations received from our Northshore community as well as a generous donation of state of the art dental equipment provided by Sullivan-Schein, the Northshore Food Bank Dental Clinic opened its doors.

Today, our Dental Clinic provides quality, comprehensive, affordable dental services to qualified low-income individuals. The Dental Clinic has paid staff and an office manager, but our greatest asset is the many volunteer dentists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants who give their time and talent to the clinic. The donation of their time and talent allows the clinic to keep its costs low, thus passing those savings onto our patients.

The Dental Clinic is located at 834 N. Columbia Street, Covington, Louisiana, adjacent to the Northshore Food Bank. The clinic is open Monday through Thursday from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm and from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. And depending on volunteer dentist availability, Fridays from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.

For more information on how to apply to become a patient of the clinic, please contact our Office Manager at 985-871-3939.
