Pediatric Dental Clinic
Serves thousands of area children who are covered by Medicaid or who cannot afford necessary dental care. Call 850-494-7150 for more information.

The American Dental Association chose the Pediatric Dental Clinic as winner of the Meritorious 2007 Community Dentistry Award. The competitive national award is recognition of a non-profit organization that has improved oral health in the local community. The Pediatric Dental Clinic was one of only three community dental programs in the United States to win a Meritorious award.

The Dental Clinic for children was established by Sacred Heart in 1997 with the help of the late Dr. Lynn F. Johnston, who served as the clinicís first dentist, and Cynthia Rivers, nurse manager of Sacred Heartís Pediatric Care Center. The clinic is a partnership between Sacred Heart Health System and the Florida Department of Health, Escambia County Health Department.

The facility has a staff of 13 people and is funded by the Escambia County Health Department along with donations received by the Sacred Heart Foundation. Support also is provided by several local dentists who donate their time and services to clinic patients.

The Dental Clinic aims to children from low-income families, especially those who qualify for Medicaid or have no insurance. Located in the Escambia County Health Department on Old Palafox Road in the Ensley area, the Clinic sees more than 6,000 patient visits each year.

It provides preventive services such as cleaning, x-rays and exams, as well as restorative services such as fillings, extractions, crowns and partial dentures. In addition, the Dental Clinic focuses on community education, with a special focus on preventing tooth decay in children and encouraging healthy dental and eating habits. A dental hygienist visits elementary schools, talks to groups of new mothers, and speaks to other parent groups to spread this message of prevention.

Pediatric Emergency Center
Provides a nine-bed area designated for children in an area separate from our adult E.R.

Sacred Heart also is designated by the state as Northwest Florida's only Pediatric Trauma Referral Center. The hospital serves as the area's treatment facility for pediatric trauma, and provides specially trained transport teams for bringing critically ill patients to Children's Hospital from areas outside Pensacola.


Early Steps Program
This program provides early intervention services in the effort to minimize developmental delay for children from birth to three years of age in Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa and Walton Counties. Services include developmental screenings, developmental assessments, service coordination, family support and early intervention services as needed.

There is no cost to families for services. Follow-up is available for children leaving the Neonatal Intensive Care Nursery at Sacred Heart Hospital and referrals are accepted from parents or from physicians and community service providers with parent permission on children with suspected delays or established conditions. For more information or to refer a child, call (850) 416-7201 or 1-800-281-1845 or click here.
