Consider Becoming a Centurion Health Dental Professional

Are you looking for a dental practice environment different and perhaps more meaningful than the traditional community office practice – an opportunity to have a powerful impact on the lives of your patients that goes beyond basic dental care? All too often those who need dental services the most have little to no access to care due to funding issues. Centurion Health is a leading national provider of medical, dental, and behavioral health services to incarcerated persons who have had little to no access to dental care prior to their incarceration.

The Life of a Corrections Dental Professional

A Need for Dental Professionals

Did you know that more than 95% of incarcerated persons will return to the community? The health and rehabilitative services they receive while incarcerated have a key impact on their success when they return to the community. Most dental professionals are not aware of the need for dental services in correctional settings, or that thousands of dental professionals serve their community by working in correctional settings providing much needed dental services to a population that has often had little to no access to oral health services prior to their incarceration
