WNCCHS Dental Care Update

Due to an extensive waist list, the WNCCHS Dental Clinic is regrettably not able to accept new dental patients at this time. We will be temporarily closing the new patient dental wait list starting July 1,2023.


We will continue to schedule new patient appointments for our special populations, including children, T3 and OB patients. If you have a patient with an immediate need, please contact Cindy Hamrick, Dental Clinic Manager, via email (chamrick@wncchs.org) or phone (ext. 2415).


Patients with urgent dental needs, such as an abscess or tooth pain, should contact WNCCHS Dental Urgent Care by calling (828) 252-0622 ext. 8903 at 3 p.m.-5p.m., Monday through Friday. Starting July 1, we will no longer accept walk-up urgent care appointments.


In order to help us communicate these changes with patients, we have developed some scripting to use for patient calls/questions:


Thank you for contacting the Western North Carolina Community Health Services dental clinic. Please be aware that, due to our extensive waitlist, we are not able to accept new dental patients at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience. If you have an urgent dental need, please contact WNCCHS Dental Urgent Care by calling (828) 252-0622 ext. 8903 between 3 p.m.-5p.m., Monday through Friday. Starting July 1, we will no longer accept walk-up urgent care appointments. Thank you for your patience.


Please reach out to us in the dental department if you have any questions. Thank you!



Kasee Metcalf, DDS
