Mendocino Community Health Center, Inc. (MCHC) is currently seeking a General Dentist (DDS and DMD) to join our care team. MCHC provides comprehensive services for the communities of Mendocino and Lake Counties In addition to Dental Care, we provide primary care, behavioral health, women's services, and specialty care services. There is strong team support and a multidisciplinary care team approach to care. The mission of MCHC Health Centers is to provide the highest quality healthcare for everyone in our communities. We ensure that there are no closed doors for those seeking care at MCHC in Lake and Mendocino Counties.

The patient population is mostly pediatrics. Each dentist typically has three rooms with 1-2 assistants and performs cleanings, extractions, dentures, partials, and crowns/RCT on anterior teeth. Our dentists see an average of fifteen patients per day. This is a practice for dentists who want to help the under-served population maintain a healthy smile and would not be a great fit for those wanting to perform high-end procedures such as elective cosmetics, implants, crowns, and bridges. The schedule is Monday – Friday, 8:30 am- 5:30 pm, and is based at our main Ukiah location. Our Dental Team consists of Dentists, RDHs, RDA-EFT2s, RDAs, and DAs.

Dental is central to the care we provide our patients. We have an amazing team and grateful patients.
