The new facility in St. Charles features six operatories with the capability for expansion and will offer high quality general dentistry services for children, youth, and pregnant women in an atmosphere that is caring, courteous, and compassionate. There are limited appointments to serve adults who do not have insurance. The clinic will initially only be providing dental services, with the addition of behavioral health services in the upcoming months.
“We are excited to continue our expansion and bring this new facility to the St. Charles area community,” said Laura Heebner, President and CEO of Crider Health Center. “We are truly committed to providing individuals and families in our service area with a healthcare home…a place where their healthcare needs can be identified and properly treated allowing them to live fuller, more productive and healthier lives.”
The new clinic will have one full time general dentist there to start, Dr. Andrea Morris, who will be joined by another full-time dentist, Dr. Kristen Crawford-Ellis, in the near future. The future growth of the clinic will also include the addition of a part-time pediatric dentist. Crider Health Center Compass Point will be open Monday – Friday from 8am – 4:30pm. Appointments can be made by calling 636-723-8500. Crider Health Center accepts all forms of Medicaid.
