DePaul Dental

“May your presence and care to those most in need reflect the gentleness, esteem, and dignity we see reflected in the life and work of Jesus.”    

~ St. Vincent DePaul


Area dentists and oral surgeons provide critical, adult dental services at reduced rates with compassion and dignity.

The DePaul Dental program works with area dentists and oral surgeons to provide adult dental services at reduced rates. Clients are interviewed for eligibility and services are provided to residents of northern Frederick County. Applications are accepted on a rolling-basis as funding permits.

Having access to dental services has long-reaching effects

  • reducing pain
  • reducing visits to emergency rooms or urgent care
  • lifting self-esteem
  • increasing job attendance
  • opening new employment opportunities
  • improving the overall health of the community.

Seton Center can only reach these goals through the generous support of the participating dental providers, donors and grant monies.
