Eason returns with grant for Boydton dental clinic

SoVaNow.com / July 24, 2013


Dr. David Eason, who previously practiced dentistry in Boydton through Healthcare on the Square, will be returning to town August 5 now that Piedmont Access to Health Services, Inc. (PATHS) has received a $132,500 grant to reopen a dental clinic in the area.

The money came from the Virginia Health Care Foundation, which has a long history of supporting the work of community health centers in providing primary care, behavioral health and dental care to low-income, uninsured Virginians.

According to Kay Crane, CEO, PATHS expects to have the clinic up and running by Aug. 5. She added, “Dental care is one of the services that is much needed in the area. Without the grant from the Virginia Health Care Foundation, providing this service would have been put off for at least a year.”

Eason said he “looks forward to serving the dental needs of his former patients, as well as meeting new ones.”

The PATHS board and staff, which include physicians Susan Hundley and Jeffrey W. Hively, are committed to providing quality medical and dental care to the citizens of Boydton and Mecklenburg County.

PATHS operates four federally qualified community health centers in Virginia and has been in operation since 2001. Currently, PATHS operates a dental clinic in Danville, along with a community pharmacy. In an ongoing collaboration with the Virginia Health Care Foundation, PATHS also is able to offer behavioral health services in Danville and Pittsylvania County.

I'm happy to hear that Dr. Eason and his team will return to Boydton. The closing of the dental facilities was a true loss to the town and community.
