Oral Health at AFC

Filling the Gap in Dental Care Campaign

Proper dental care can be a matter of life and death. Many diseases that start in the mouth can ravage the rest of our bodies. That was the case for William Mellon, who died at the age of 62 from an untreated tooth infection. In memory of her father and to help others get the oral health care her father couldn’t afford, Mary Mellon has made a gift to Arlington Free Clinic (AFC) to help enable a better way to serve our patients.

With Mary’s gift, our ongoing fundraising, and special one-time gifts from loyal supporters like you, we will triple the number of patients that receive vital dental care. AFC’s Filling the Gap Campaign will make it possible to move our dental program to our main medical site, expand services, and streamline care delivery to those in need.


By integrating dental operations within AFC’s clinic footprint, our campaign will expand access to oral health services and advance our mission of improving health outcomes through truly integrated, whole-patient healthcare.
