Amaus Dental Service was founded in August 2014 to offer access to free dental care for the homeless, unemployed and uninsured of Central New York, providing $100,000 worth of dental care in the first 30 months. In February 2017, Amaus opened three new operatory dental suites including modern dental chairs, new equipment, digital –rays and an electronic dental record. This expansion was made possible by support from many sources including The John Ben Snow Foundation who providing funding to equip the dental treatment room. With our expansion and increased number of volunteers, we should be able to at least double the amount of dental care provided to our neighbors in CNY who have no other avenues to access the dental care they need.
