The Rural Parish Clinic (RPC) will open its third mobile dental clinic site in the Archdiocese of St. Louis on Oct. 14, 2021, in Troy, Mo. at Sacred Heart Parish (100 Thompson Way). The clinic will be open to patients Oct. 14-16 and 21-23, as staffing permits, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
As with all RPC dental locations, the goal of the new clinic is to offer primary dental care free of charge to uninsured patients in an underserved community. The opening of the Troy clinic is a collaborative initiative between the Rural Parish Clinic and the five Archdiocese of St. Louis parishes of Lincoln County, as well as the local Ministerial Alliances, a Christian interfaith organization that offers assistance to families in need of supplies or financial aid to cover essential expenses.
While the RPC does not offer testing nor medical care for COVID-19 patients, the clinic will provide screening, guidance and referrals for those in need of testing, vaccine and/or treatment for the virus.
As the RPC’s mobile medical clinics serve mainly as primary-care facilities, clinic leadership encourages those seeking care to make an appointment – and schedule follow-up appointments—ahead of time, including regular check-ups, by calling 314-225-4034. Walk-in patients are accepted as availability allows.
