Farmworker Health Program
 

We provide comprehensive, compassionate, and affordable medical care to Farmworkers in the High Country.

Farmworker Health Program

What we do:  Our goal is to provide accessible medical services for the migrant agricultural community to help them stay healthy throughout their work season. We offer on-site medical consultations with a provider, and education about preventative services. Additionally, our team is dedicated to connecting the agricultural community to outside resources such as food pantries, internet access, financial assistance, and medication assistance etc.

What we do

Outreach

Prevention is key to having healthy teeth and gums. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends brushing twice a day for two minutes and flossing on a nightly basis. In addition, the ADA recommends getting professional tooth cleanings at regular intervals set forth by your dentist. At HCCH we offer the following preventive services: - Cleanings - Scaling and RootPlaning - Debridements - Fluoride - Sealants - Silver Diamine Fluoride - Xrays - Exams - Night guards and athletic guards

Orthodontic Checkup
Tooth Exam

Night Clinic

Sometimes teeth have no other option but to come out.  If that is the case, we can help.  We offer:

- Simple extractions

- Surgical extractions

- Removal of some partially erupted teeth

Oral Surgery

Mobile Unit

When teeth decay, the cavity must be removed and the missing tooth structure replaced with a restoration (filling). 

If a tooth is mostly filling material or is fractured, sometimes a crown is recommended.  Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth if there are good abutments on either side of the space.

Events

When teeth are missing, sometimes they can be replaced with a removable appliance.  We offer a variety of replacement appliance options such as:

- Complete dentures

- Partial dentures (metal-based, acrylic, and flex-based)

Endodontic Therapy

Occasionally, decay is too deep to be filled and the tooth must receive a root canal.  A root canal is designed to eliminate bacteria and prevent infection/reinfection of a tooth.

  • What should I expect as a new patient?
    A one-on-one appointment with our Registered Dietitian to develop an individualized nutrition plan by setting small, realistic goals that fit into your lifestyle.
  • Are they just going to tell me what I can't eat?
    To put it simply, no! Nutrition counseling focuses on foods and beverages we should be eating and drinking most often, and helps you find your own individual balance with your favorite foods.
  • Who would benefit from counseling?
    Anyone interested in prevention or management of the following conditions: - Weight Management - Diabetes or Pre-diabetes - Picky eating and family meals - Hypertension/High blood pressure - High Cholesterol - Heart disease - IBS - Constipation - Inflammation - Healthy Pregnancy - Modified diets - Malnutrition - Thyroid issues - General Wellness
  • How much does this cost?
    All forms of insurance are accepted, including private insurance, Veteran's Choice, Medicare, and Medicaid. Most insurance plans cover nutrition services under preventative wellness, meaning you will not have a co-pay. For those without insurance, HCCH offers a Sliding Fee Scale based on your current income. Please click on the Sliding Fee Scale tab at the top of the page to learn more and apply.
