Jefferson County Department of Health Clinics

Adult Clinic
Dear JCDH Adult Health patients,
Thank you for allowing the Jefferson County Department of Health (JCDH) to be your primary care provider. It has been our honor to provide primary care services to adults for over 30 years. Changes in the healthcare market accompanied by the challenges of COVID-19 have caused us to reevaluate the services we offer. As a result, we have made the difficult decision to close our Adult Health clinics. We will be available to provide medical services to you until September 15, 2020.
We are fortunate to have many partners in the community who are willing to provide high-quality care to our patients. If you need assistance with finding a new healthcare provider, call (205) 588-5234 or contact the Physician Referral Service of the Jefferson County Medical Society at (205) 933-8601. You may have your medical records transferred by signing a release of information form at JCDH or with your new healthcare provider. The release of information form is available at JCDH facilities and can be downloaded below. If you need assistance obtaining your records or completing the form, you may call (205) 588-5234 and a JCDH representative will assist you.
This transition does not affect any other clinical service currently offered at JCDH. Family Planning, Pediatrics/Child Health, Sexual Health, Tuberculosis, Dental and Travel Services will continue to be offered.
We understand change can be difficult, but we are available to help you through this transition. JCDH remains committed to serving the needs of our community. We’ll still be here, focusing on new and innovative ways to serve Jefferson County residents. Thank you for the trust you place in us.

Dental Clinic
General dental care is provided for individuals who meet eligibility requirements. The Jefferson County Department of Health has dental clinics in three locations throughout Jefferson County to improve the overall health of the county’s underserved individuals through increased access to oral health services. The JCDH Dental Clinics are currently accepting new patients under the age of 21. It is recommended that children have their first dental visit by their first birthday. To be eligible for treatment in the dental clinics, clients must be a resident of Jefferson County and provide the following:
  • proof of identity
  • proof of residency
  • proof of household income, or proof of Medicaid or ALL Kids dental insurance
Dental care is often the forgotten part of a healthy lifestyle. Oral disease can affect a person’s speech, appearance, health, and quality of life. Regular dental care is not only important to maintain the health of your teeth, but also your entire body. Poor oral and dental health can result in serious infections of the mouth, teeth, and body. For information on healthy oral health habits, visit the American Dental Association’s consumer website mouthhealthy.org.
