Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center - Houston, Texas
VA Dental Services Come to Conroe
Veterans seeking VA dental services can now receive their care in our Conroe VA Outpatient Clinic. A new dental expansion opened at the Conroe clinic a few short weeks ago to the delight of Veterans who live in the area. “It’s so nice not to have to travel all the way in to the Medical Center to receive dental care,” said Marine Corps Veteran, Danny Clayton, one of the first patients seen in the new dental expansion. “It’s much more convenient and quick to see one of the new dentists right here in Conroe.”
The Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center in Houston operates nine community based outpatient clinics, with dental services being offered only at the main medical center. The new dental expansion brings dental care close to where many Veterans live and takes some pressure off the medical center’s dental service, which serves more than 6,700 Veterans annually.
“We are proud to offer state-of-the-art dental care to Veterans in our Conroe Clinic,” said Francisco Vazquez, Houston VA Medical Center Director. “We have hired nine new employees for our new Conroe Dental location so far, including dentists, hygienists, etc.”
Veterans who want to inquire about Dental care are encouraged to call the Houston VA at 713-794-7288 to determine eligibility. Veterans who are eligible can contact the Conroe Dental Clinic at 936-522-4045 to schedule an appointment.
