Lifecare Family Health and Dental Center

Lifecare Family Health and Dental Center has been serving your community since 1994, originally as Canton Community Clinic. The clinic provided free essential medical services to the uninsured and underserved people of Canton.

In 2006, the clinic became a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) which enabled the center to expand and provide affordable, accessible and comprehensive health care services to residents of Canton, Massillon and surrounding Stark County communities.

In 2014, the Richard D. Watkins Canton Community Clinic name was changed to Lifecare Family Health and Dental Center. Today, Lifecare is ideally positioned as a Community Health Center with three locations in Stark County, two in Canton and one in Massillon. We offer a trusting, welcoming environment, maintaining the highest quality health care to each and every individual that we serve.  Our services include Primary Care (including Women’s Health and Pediatrics), Dental, Vision, Podiatry and Behavioral Health. Our team of health care professionals includes family physicians, family and psychiatric nurse practitioners, dentists, dental hygienists, optometrist, podiatrist and behavioral health counselors.

Lifecare has remained open throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We are utilizing stringent measures in order to keep our patients and employees safe. During this uncertain time, we are offering Telehealth visits to our patients for continuity of care.

We are a provider for Medicaid and Medicare plans. We have minimum co-pay with a sliding fee scale available to accommodate the uninsured or underinsured.  Private insurance and self-pay are accepted.  We have Certified Application Counselors (CAC) onsite to assist with navigating the Health Insurance Marketplace for insurance, as well as completing Presumptive Eligibility applications for Ohio Medicaid. This service is available even if you are not a current Lifecare patient, at no cost to the consumer.

Our outreach team has been hard at work during this COVID-19 pandemic, despite not being able to attend the usual community outreach events. We currently have commercials running on WHBC 94.1 and 1480. On Aug. 24, our advertisements were placed on some SARTA buses. We are encouraging everyone to “Stop the Spread” by washing your hands, social distancing and wearing your mask. We have adopted the phrase, “Life may be on pause, but your health is not. Don’t delay routine health care when you can connect with Lifecare Family Health and Dental Center.”

Lifecare Family Health and Dental Center is…Rooted in the communities we serve.
