Health Center One Step Closer to Funding for New Dental Clinic

Laurel Health Centers in Mansfield was notified that Sen. John Fetterman has advanced a one-million-dollar Congressional directed spending request to the Appropriations Committee for review on their behalf. If approved, this funding will allow Laurel Health to construct a new full-service dental clinic to provide essential dental services to patients of all ages in northcentral Pennsylvania. Families in rural areas often limit or go without access to regular dental care due to a lack of dental insurance and the high costs associated with routine cleanings and treatment. For the past several years, Laurel Health has been working diligently to bring comprehensive, affordable dental services to more underserved communities and is excited to take the next step in that journey.
