A Door County dentist hopes that Governor Evers plan to add more money for low-income people to get dental care passes. Evers has proposed to add $43 million dollars to the state budget that would help dentists in rural communities see more low-income patients. Tanya Fischer, the Manager of the Door County Medical Center Dental Clinic, says many people cannot afford to get needed dental work completed and suffer as a result. Fischer added that oral health can’t be overlooked.
Fischer says the Door County Medical Center Dental Clinic does see as many uninsured patients as they can up to a certain income level.
