The Department of Dental Medicine at Jamaica Hospital has been providing valuable services to the community since it was established in 1972 and has grown to meet the community’s increasing needs. All services are offered at our state-of-the-art dental center located at 134-20 Jamaica Avenue.
Our beautifully-decorated, 11,000-square-foot facility features a comfortable waiting area, exam rooms that provide our patients with privacy, 19 dental chairs, and the latest, state-of-the-art equipment, such as digital radiography units that reduce the amount of radiation required to take x-rays.
In our center, you will have access to a team of highly-qualified dental professionals consisting of over 30 voluntary attendings, three hygienists, 14 residents (including a pediatric dentistry resident and one oral surgery resident), and a number of support staff members who have been specially trained to provide the highest quality care. All members of our department 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.
For those who can’t get to Jamaica Hospital’s Dental Center, dental care is also available at many of our MediSys Health Care Centers in the community. The services and 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. Please note that not all centers provide every service. When calling to make your appointment, please inquire about services offered.
