CHHMP Dental, also known as the Dr. Michael Yuan Student Run Dental Free Clinic, partners with CHHMP Medical the first Tuesday of every month to provide free dental screenings and oral hygiene instruction to the homeless, uninsured, and undocumented people of Harlem. Emergency dental services are covered by Columbia University College of Dental Medicine. Dental students see patients under the supervision of Dr. Asma Muzaffar, Faculty at the College of Dental Medicine.
The clinic provides dental students with an opportunity to work together to address the challenges of providing dental care to this underserved patient population. CHHMP dental students are dedicated in their efforts to expand the functions of the clinic to improve access to care and to improve the oral health in the Harlem community. CHHMP dental students strive to create an organization which will deliver comprehensive dental care while maintaining the continuity of care within the realms of latest standard of practice to vulnerable adult populations lacking access to dental resources.
