What is National Association of Community Health Centers:
The National Association of Community Health Centers is a nonprofit organization that represents health centers -- providing advocacy, education, training, and technical assistance to health centers in support of their mission to provide quality health care to underserved populations.  You can learn more about health centers here at

Health Center Growth - help with obtaining grants to open new clinics, etc

To find a center you go to Health Resources and Services Administration, a part of US Department of Health and Human Services:

Does this mean taxpayers picked up the bill to build these torture chambers through Federal Grants or some other vehicle?  Do the professionals (dentists) who work at these designated centers get a break on education costs, maybe the company, Kool Smiles (NCDR) get help with paying these same professionals?

I've not had time to look into it.  Here are some links for anyone who would like to do so.
