North Country HealthCare is a federally qualified health center (FQHC) serving 12 communities across the entire northern half of Arizona.

YOU WILL CONTRIBUTE BY

  • Providing preventative and general dental care for pediatric to adult patients including cleanings, examination and diagnosis of oral hard and soft tissues diseases, interpretation of radiographs, extractions, fillings, restorative work, emergency assessments, and uncomplicated root canals while maintaining accurate and complete patient dental records.
  • Developing treatment plans and educating patients.
  • Making referrals as needed and completing appropriate work up before referral.
  • Developing, promoting, and participating in community-based oral health education programs.

YOU WILL BENEFIT FROM

  • Being part of an integrated care clinic -- your patients may have needs beyond the dental chair and our family medicine and behavioral health team, located in the same building as you, can provide the care they need.

  • Keeping your skills sharp -- the FQHC patient base tends to include those with a wide variety of issues that are rarely seen in other types of practices.
