Project SANDs

Let us help you find a dental provider in your community.

SANDs (Special Needs Network of Dentists) is a project of the Medical University of South Carolina, funded by the Duke Endowment to connect adults with special needs to dental care providers.

Our goals are to improve access to quality, evidence-based oral health care for Special Health Care Needs (SHCN) populations, improve oral health clinical indicators for SHCN patients, and move SHCN patients from emergency, episodic treatment into routine dental care in a dental home in their community.

SANDs personnel will provide concierge care to your family member and assist in finding the right provider, whether it is at our clinic here at MUSC or with a dental provider in your community. We have partnered with Family Connection South Carolina to provide follow up patient navigator services to assure appointments are kept and that quality service is being provided.
