Part of that support is referring friends to the Relationship and Sexual Violence Prevention (RSVP) Office.  If you have been impacted by relationship or sexual violence or know someone who has, remember you are never alone. The RSVP Office is here to help.

Don’t Be Afraid of the Dentists

A note from the staff of UHC Dental Clinic

Even though we’re approaching Halloween, you won’t scare us. And we won’t scare you!

We have seen many patients who have never been to the dentist before, and many more who have a true fear of “the dentist” (dun…dun…dun…). But we want you to know that there is nothing to fear and that you should never feel embarrassed to come see us! We will do everything in our power to allay your fears, make you feel at ease, and resolve your dental issues.
