Dental Care Available at Maxwell Dental Clinic
The Maxwell Dental Clinic provides a staff of licensed general dentists who provide dental examinations, operative (dental fillings), prosthetics (dental crowns, bridges, dentures), some types of tooth replacement, endodontics (root canal treatment) and emergency services. The clinic also employs registered dental hygienists and dental technicians to provide cleanings and preventive dental services.
Members who are found to require other dental specialty care outside the scope of practice of our staff are referred to specialists as needed.
