he Department of Dentistry at Jamaica Hospital has been providing valuable services to the community since it began in 1972, and has grown to meet the community's increasing needs. Our latest effort to meet those needs is the completion of our brand new, state-of-the-art dental center, located at 134-20 Jamaica Avenue.
The new center features a 15-chair dental clinic as well as a separate, four-chair faculty practice within its 11,000 square feet of space. It is wonderfully decorated and features all the latest, state-of-the-art dental equipment including fiber optic, high-speed drills, the latest oral cancer screening kits, and digital radiography units that will reduce the amount of radiation required to take films. The dental center also now has the ability to provide the latest techniques in sterilization and has added a paperless, computerized record, billing, and appointment system.
The spacious center has a large waiting area, with two televisions and a play area for children. It is colorfully painted and each exam room offers the patient a great deal of privacy. The staff of over 60 voluntary attendings, three hygienists, 10 residents, and a large support staff, have all been specially trained to provide the highest quality care and are dedicated to making your visit as comfortable as possible.

If you have a dental emergency, such as extreme pain, swelling, trauma, bleeding, or infection and the Dental Department is not open, you can go to Jamaica Hospital's Emergency Department. A dental resident is on-call 24-hours a day, seven days a week to treat emergencies.
We accept Medicaid, Medicare, Child Health Plus. Neighborhood Health Providers, Health Plus, and many other insurances. For those who do not have dental coverage, we do offer an affordable reduced fee schedule.
For those who can't get to Jamaica Hospital's Dental Center, we have made every effort to bring dental care to you. Most of our MediSys Health Care Centers in the community also offer dental services and our staff at these centers are held to the same high standards we set at our main office. Please review our list of dental centers and choose the one that is closest to home.
