Faces of Molokai Community Health Center
MCHC News Release
There’s no doubt that 2013 has been a year of growth and renewal at the Molokai Community Health Center (MCHC). In light of this, we would like to introduce the many new faces that you will be seeing on our campus and how they may be a resource to you.
Our new Dental Director, Benjamin Mead, DDS, is a Hilo-born University of Hawaii, Manoa graduate who finished his dentistry program at the University of Missouri Kansas City School where he completed his studies in 2008.
Dr. Mead returned home to Hawaii Island where he worked in both a private practice setting as well as at a public health clinic as a lead dentist. Since working on Hawaii Island, Dr. Mead had the opportunity to join our team here at MCHC as a temporary provider. This opportunity led Dr. Mead to “fall in love with the clinic and its mission, and especially the island of Molokai” and to accept the position as our lead dentist.
If you haven’t met Dr. Mead on our campus, you may see him out surfing or fishing. To make an appointment with Dr. Mead, please call 553-4511, Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. (closed Fridays). Our dental department handles comprehensive dental care from routine visits to complex cases. We accept patients as early as six months of age and are currently accepting new patients.
