Walmart has launched its second Health Center, including oral healthcare, with a January 29 grand opening adjacent to its retail Supercenter in Calhoun, Georgia. Services include exams with x-rays, cleanings, porcelain crowns, whitening, deep cleanings, emergency treatment, fillings, and clear aligners, with transparent pricing regardless of insurance status.
“We think we can make an impactful difference in affordability, convenience, and, most importantly, accessibility for the Calhoun community,” said Sean Slovenski, senior vice president and president of Walmart US Health and Wellness.
“We have a history of launching innovative products and programs that have transformed the industry and created significant healthcare savings for customers. Now, we’re focused on a solution to provide affordable integrated care that our customers want and deserve,” said Slovenski.
The Calhoun location follows the opening of Walmart’s first Health Center, which opened last September in Dallas, Georgia. Walmart Health is operated by qualified medical professionals, including physicians, nurse practitioners, dentists, behavioral health providers, and optometrists, Walmart says.
Walmart Care Hosts and Community Health Workers onsite will help customers navigate their visit, understand resources, and be a familiar presence for regular visits, Walmart says. As part of the grand opening, Walmart also will make a donation to Susan G. Komen to help meet women’s health needs through expanded access to care.
Dental exams will cost $25. Adult cleanings will start at $25, and youth exams will start at $15. Walmart expects porcelain crowns to have an average price of $675. Whitening treatment will cost $225. Deep cleanings per quad will cost $75. Emergency treatment for pain will cost $50. Fillings will range from $75 to $125. Clear aligners will cost $1,800.
