The Marion County Dental Association and its members support the Ocala area with dental care for many in need and funding for projects related to dentistry, and dental education.
We are an annual financial contributor to the College of Central Florida dental program. The dental assisting program was started with our support and reflects a core value of our organization by introducing the excellence and joy of our profession to others by helping them to achieve education in our profession.
Marion County Dental Association participates in a "peer review" program which is an impartial confidential monitoring system whose purpose is to resolve disputes between member dentists and patients. Please contact us for further information.
Our members volunteer and provide treatment for those less fortunate in our community. We provide dental care or have participated in the following programs: Give Kids a Smile, Dentistry from the Heart, Baptist Dental Bus, and the Marion County Hampton Center Public Health Dental Clinic. This is done to provide high quality dental care at reduced cost or free to Marion County citizens to and help address the access to care concerns. For information on these programs, see our “LINKS” page.
