Welcome to the Community Health Center of Stamford at Fifth Street

Established in 2000, the Dental Center of Stamford was founded by area citizens and became part of CHC, Inc. in 2005. It is the hub for a network of CHC dental services throughout Stamford. When comprehensive medical services were added in 2009, the Center became known as the Franklin Street Community Health Center. In 2018, a new location in Stamford was opened at 22 5th Street.

There has been a change to our hours as a result of COVID-19. Please continue checking back for further updates. Appointments will still occur via phone or video call if the clinic is closed.
