The Ocean County Health Department continues to work with the Center for Health, Education, Medicine and Dentistry (CHEMED), located in Lakewod, and the Ocean Health Initiatives, located in Toms River, Lakewood and Manahawkin.
These sites offer preventative and restorative dental care for children currently enrolled in or who qualify for Medicaide or NJ FamilyCare. They also provide services to children who qualify for the free and reduced lunch programs or have no dental insurance and are in need of dental care. Depending on income levels, there may be a co-pay for services rendered.
Please contact the me if you would like an application form or have any questions.
