Public Health Dental Clinics

(A partnership for good dental health)

When people have access to consistent dental care, their overall health, wellbeing and confidence are greatly improved, along with their ability to secure employment, learn in school and contribute to society. Michigan has more than a million residents whose annual incomes fall below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. The majority of these folks do not have dental insurance or are on Medicaid and have poor access to dental care.

In an effort to provide dental care to our citizens in Branch, Hillsdale and St. Joseph Counties, the Community Health Agency has formed a partnership with Michigan Community Dental Clinics, Incorporated (MCDC). MCDC is a non-profit organization who operates numerous dental clinics across Michigan in partnership with local health departments, such as ours.

In January 2008, the Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Community Health Agency, in partnership with MCDC opened the first Public Health dental clinic in our tri-county region. In March 2011, the partnership expanded its operations by opening a second dental clinic. Both clinics serve Medicaid, under-insured and uninsured clients.
