Dental Services

East Cooper Community Outreach (ECCO) provides a range of dental procedures and services for uninsured adults each year – all at no cost to the patient. Through our partnership with the MUSC College of Dental Medicine and Trident Technical College of Dental Hygiene, we are able to provide preventative and restorative care, as well as extractions through our Extraction Clinic. Last year, we provided more than $532,000 worth of dental care to nearly 700 neighbors.

Preventative/Restorative Care

Make ECCO your dental home! Our services include comprehensive exams, health screenings, x-rays, cleanings, and fillings. All services are available to uninsured residents of the Tri-County area and meet our income eligibility guidelines.

Extraction Clinic

Extractions are commonly performed on teeth that are decayed, broken, or beyond repair. ECCO’s Extraction Clinic is available for those who are uninsured residents of the Tri-County area. All prospective patients MUST CALL AHEAD for assessment and to schedule an appointment.
