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. One example of meeting these needs is the addition of a designated pediatric dental program. All services are offered at our state-of-the-art dental center, located at 134-20 Jamaica Avenue.
Our facility features a 19-chair dental clinic within its 11,000 square feet of space. It is beautifully decorated and features all the latest, state-of-the-art dental equipment including digital radiography units that will reduce the amount of radiation required to take x-rays.
The spacious center has a comfortable waiting area and every exam room offers patient privacy. The staff consists of over 30 voluntary attendings, three hygienists, 14 residents, (two of which are Pediatric Dentistry residents and one Oral Surgery resident) and a large support staff. The entire staff has 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, Healthfirst, Child 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, 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.
