TOMBALL, TX – TOMAGWA HealthCare Ministries is proud to announce that its new Dental Clinic is running strongly after the first quarter of operations. TOMAGWA has operated the dental program since January 3, 2013 and has seen approximately 547 patients and provided over $200,000 worth of dental services. The clinic has offered services ranging from a routine checkup and x-rays, cleanings, fillings, extractions, bridges, crowns, dentures, partials as well as sealants on the younger patients. Services have been provided by a staff dentist and volunteer dentists and hygienists from the community as well as Lone Star College Kingwood, Dental Hygiene School. The dental program houses four dental chairs that are able to accommodate up to 2,600 dental visits a year, so we are well on our way to exceeding those numbers.
“TOMAGWA is a Christian ministry that, by the Grace of God and in response to the Love of Jesus, provides quality health care, offers hope and restores dignity to uninsured, low-income families and individuals in the Tri-County region,” said Judy Deyo, TOMAGWA’s Executive Director. “We are blessed to extend the ministry to include dental services for our current patients at this time.”
Tomball Regional Health Foundation (TRHF) “We are so proud that we have been able to help TOMAGWA to get the Dental Clinic up and running as well as help the citizens in this community receive the dental care that they so greatly need,” said Jack Smith, TRHF Chairman of the Board.
