Two organizations, working together.

Correctional Medicine Associates (CMA) and Correctional Dental Associates (CDA) include professional corporations and associations that employ medical, mental health, and dental providers to provide expert health care in correctional facilities.

CMA & CDA provide health care services for private-sector correctional and detention facilities. Our team of health care professionals consists of more than 200 physicians, psychiatrists, dentists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. These health care professionals currently provide services exclusively for CoreCivic, which provides management and care for more than 60,000 inmates, detainees, and residents throughout the United States.

Non-professional health care positions (such as RNs and administrative staff) are hired directly through CoreCivic.

Correctional providers make an important difference.

It is an exclusive group of individuals who practice correctional medicine. CMA providers are a talented group of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and psychiatrists who value the experience of providing direct patient care. They enjoy the opportunity to work with a skilled medical team that encounters a daily clinical variety of medical issues, without the administrative distractions of free world practice.

In addition to providing guidance and clinical support to the facility’s medical teams, our correctional providers are able to make a real difference in the lives of our inmates. They deliver medical services on a daily basis to inmates similar to those provided in a typical outpatient setting, including:

  • Chronic disease management
  • Medication management
  • Routine clinic visits
  • Physical exams
  • Acute/urgent care delivery
  • Offsite utilization
  • And the array of medical duties seen in a large group practice

All of these advantages combine to make correctional medicine with CMA a professionally and personally satisfying career choice.

CMA is led by Chief Medical Officer Keith Ivens, MD.

Correctional dentists enjoy work without private practice hassles.

Correctional dentistry offers a diverse, fast-paced day without the hassles of private practice. In addition to a great variety of dental cases, correctional dentists enjoy the ability to practice dentistry without the added administrative distractions of third-party billing, staffing and overhead expense. This allows CDA dentists to spend more time addressing the diverse dental health challenges of their patients.

CDA provides quality dental care in a timely, cost efficient and effective manner through:

  • Dental care including diagnostic, preventive, restorative, periodontal extractions, and exodontic procedures.
  • Licensed dentists that adhere to OSHA standards and CDC guidelines.
  • Complete dental records, including medical and mental health components are available electronically for easy access and review (where available).
  • Dental chart documentation is entered electronically into the Electronic Medical Record (where available).
  • Dental and medical specialists are available for consultation and treatment.

All of these advantages combine to make correctional dentistry with CDA a professionally and personally satisfying career choice.
