C. L. Brumback Primary Care Clinics Appoint New Dental Director and are Awarded a $300,000 HRSA Grant for Dental Equipment

In Palm Beach County it is not unusual for someone to speak both English and Spanish, but John Cucuras, DDS, brings a third language skill to his new role as Dental Program Director at the C. L. Brumback Primary Care Clinics – he speaks Greek.

In addition to his interests in travel, music and philosophy, Dr. Cucuras also enjoys the history of Roman-Greco civilizations. He is member of American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association. He also has over 30 years of experience in private and public health dentistry.
Dr. Cucuras steps into his new role at a time when the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has awarded a $300,000 grant to the Brumback Primary Care Clinics to support clinically-based dental care to all Palm Beach County residents, regardless of their ability to pay.
The grant funds will be used to purchase equipment and supplies to include 19 new dental chairs, three X-ray tubeheads, a bariatric seat, and wheelchair lift to increase access to care and enhance existing preventative oral health services.
