In order to help stem the rising costs of medication, medical supplies and care, Eblen Medical helps provide medical assistance to children, adults, and families living in our community by providing medication, medical supplies, physician visits, and eye glasses. Families living with the burdens and the effects that illnesses and disabilities so often bring have to face the many challenges and decisions that other families do not. Inspired by these courageous families, Eblen Medical sets out to stand beside them as they take up this most important fight.
Dental: Founded as an additional outreach of Eblen Medical, Eblen Dental reaches out to children and adults in need of dental care. Thanks to the visions of Dr. Keith Black, Dr. Mark Knollman, and Dr. Dennis Campbell and in partnership with the Buncombe County Dental Society, the Buncombe County Health Department, Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College, the Mission Hospital System, and the Buncombe County Dental Assistants and Hygienists, the Eblen Dental programs has served thousands of children and adults in our community.
The Children’s Dental Sealant Program: Another part of the Children’s Dental Assistance Program is the Children’s Dental Sealant Program, which was developed to provide free dental sealants to all third graders in need in the Buncombe County and Asheville City School Systems. The Children’s Dental Sealant Program has been honored with regional and national awards including the GlaxoSmithKline Child Health Recognition Award and the national Linkages award.
The Mission Hospital / Eblen Children’s Dental Outreach: To assist with oral surgery needs, the Children’s Dental Outreach Program has partnered with Mission Hospitals to assist local children in need of extensive dental care through the dental opera Tories at Mission Hospital. This partnership, along with assistance from Asheville Anesthesia helps provide the opportunities for children in need of oral surgery to obtain care.
