The Wright Center for Primary Care Celebrates the Opening of New Oral Health Clinic

The Wright Center for Primary Care Oral Health Clinic celebrated its official ribbon cutting on Thursday, November 16. Thanks to generous grants from the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation and the Moses Taylor Foundation, we are now offering a full range of oral health care services to all members of the community.

Northeast Pennsylvania’s most recent Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) revealed oral health services and education as one of the top five regional health areas for concern. In response to this identified health challenge, The Wright Center for Primary Care began offering basic and preventive oral health services on-site within its Mid Valley location in 2014. The team, led by dentist Dr. Darleen Oleski, has utilized donated, portable equipment to see all patients, regardless of ability to pay, for the past three years.

In 2016, the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation and the Moses Taylor Foundation infused resources into The Wright Center for Primary Care’s oral health clinic, housed within The Wright Center for Primary Care Mid Valley. The project was completed in late October. The new space accommodates four spacious exam rooms and on-site x-ray capabilities. The expanded dental care team is now able to provide additional services, including extractions and emergency services.

The Wright Center’s team of Dr. Jignesh Sheth, Dr. Darleen Oleski, Dr. Maria Montoro-Edwards, Kathleen Barry, Donna Passino, Marisa Duchnik, Jenna Macejkovic and Dee Dymond should be recognized for their commitment to making the transition to our new, expanded clinical space an overwhelming success. A special thanks to the Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce, our community partners and local dignitaries and representatives, including Borough of Archbald Mayor Shirley Barrett, State Representative Sid Michaels Kavulich, Jermyn Borough Council President Frank Kulick and Larry West from Senator John Blake’s office for their support and attendance at this exciting event.
