New Dental Services at Family Medicine Center, Rock Sound

Rock Sound, Eleuthera – Family Medicine Center (FMC) is pleased to announce the addition of comprehensive dental services to its suite of medical offerings. Well-respected dentist Dr. Hadassah Knowles joins the FMC Rock Sound healthcare team in Eleuthera.

Dr. Knowles brings over thirty years of experience in dentistry, ensuring that patients receive high-quality care in a range of dental procedures. Services include routine exams, dental cleanings, fillings, X-rays, root canals, crowns, bridges, and extractions. Her commitment to patient care aligns with Family Medicine Center’s mission to provide compassionate and comprehensive healthcare to the Rock Sound community.

Patients can now benefit from these essential dental services conveniently located at the Family Medicine Center Rock Sound facility on Queen’s Highway. Dr. Knowles is dedicated to enhancing oral health and overall well-being through preventive care and effective treatments.

Family Medicine Center Rock Sound celebrated the opening of its newly expanded facility at the end of last year. Since then the service offerings have also been steadily expanding.

Comprehensive gastroenterology services with Dr. Flloyd Carter, including endoscopy and colonoscopy, were added to the Rock Sound clinic in March. In early June, urology services were also introduced, along with a special offer of free PSA testing for men over 40 consulting for the first time with Urologist, Dr. Greggory Pinto. Both of these services have been well-established and available for several years at Family Medicine Center's main facility in Nassau.

However, the addition of dental and hygiene services in Rock Sound marks a milestone for Family Medicine Center in patient-care services. Bringing dentistry into a primary medical care environment puts focus on the strong connection between dental health and overall well-being.

"Dental care is an important cornerstone of health in general," says Dr. Graham Cates, Medical Director of Family Medicine Center. “The introduction of dental services at Family Medicine Center Rock Sound offers patients a well-rounded, one-stop healthcare solution."

"Dental health is often overlooked as part of effective primary care, however, it has been shown that there is a connection between oral health and many conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, alzheimer's, kidney disease, and even complications in pregnancy,” Dr. Cates said.

Working alongside Dr. Knowles is dental hygienist Margot Ingraham, who also has more than thirty years experience. Ms Ingraham said she is committed to improving patients' quality of life through dental care - an aspect of health that she considers vital. She enjoys interacting with patients and educating them on maintaining daily dental health practices.

"We are thrilled to add skilled, experienced healthcare professionals like Dr. Hadassah Knowles and Margot Ingraham to our Rock Sound team," said Dr. Zenna Friend, Lead Physician at Family Medicine Center Rock Sound.

“Their interest in exceeding patient expectations and providing excellent care to our community aligns perfectly with Family Medicine Center's philosophy,” added Dr. Friend.

Dr. Knowles said she is delighted to be working with Family Medicine Center, praising the team in Rock Sound for a well-structured, efficient practice that puts the patient first.

“Oral healthcare is the gateway to good overall health,” said Dr. Knowles, who describes herself as “an island dentist bringing affordable, efficient and quality dental care to the good people of Eleuthera.”
