Gennesaret Free Clinics (GFC) Dental program dates back to 1989 when Dr. John Stone, DDS single handedly opened dental clinics in Indianapolis’ three family shelters – DaySpring Center, The Care Center and Holy Family Shelter. To meet the overwhelming need for the underserved, GFC expanded services and opened a new dental clinic in the lower level of the Blue Triangle Residence Hall in 2002.
A dentist from the Marion County Health Department staffs this clinic three days per week and volunteer dentists the remainder of time. In addition, oral hygiene students from the Indiana University School of Dentistry use this site as a service learning experience for their students.
Services provided include: examinations, x-rays, oral hygiene services, extractions, restorative work, root canals & steel crowns, dentures, and partials. Annually, the Dental clinic records approximately 3,000 patient visits.
