The St. Joseph Senior Dental Clinic is located in the Senior Services area of St. Joseph Health Center. The clinic opened in 2001 after senior citizens and caregivers cited dental care as their largest heathcare need. The center serves residents of St. Charles, Warren and Lincoln Counties.
Since the clinic’s opening, volunteer dentists have treated more than 6,000 low-income seniors who could not otherwise afford care. Transportation is provided for those living in the community, or in residential or long-term care facilities.
Our mission at the St. Joseph Senior Dental Clinic is to improve the quality of life for seniors living in St. Charles, Warren and Lincoln counties through preventative and restorative dental care. We are making a difference in the lives of clinic patients.

- ALL patients must live within the 3 counties served: St. Charles, Warren or Lincoln counties
- Be over 60 years old and have annual income of less than $26,000 if living alone or $35,000 if living with one other person
- Or be living in a nursing home and either Medicaid eligible or within the same guidelines as above
