We are here to assist parents/caregivers with the often confusing network of agencies and regulations in our health care system.
By asking one of the clinic team members—patient services representatives (front desk), dental assistants, the clinic manager, dental faculty and dental residents—the family can contact the social worker for assistance and support.

- Arrange for transportation if needed
- Help find additional community resources for your family
- Coordinate with other health providers
- Seek answers to parents’ concerns
- Find answers to parents’ questions about treatment
