Dozens of patients in Door and Kewaunee counties can thank the Tooth Fairy for the additional help keeping their teeth clean. Door County Medical Center recently wrapped up its annual Tooth Fairy campaign for its dental clinic. Instead of collecting teeth, the Tooth Fairy collected over $3,000 from mainly hospital employees to help support the dental clinic’s costs for providing oral health assistance for Medicaid participants and low-income individuals without insurance. Tanya Fischer from the Door County Medical Center Dental Clinic says the dental clinic was closed for a few months last year and invested in several measures to help keep patients and their team safe.
Fischer says the demand for their services has not slowed down since they fully reopened in June. They have also hired two new dentists, Drs. Michelle Shipp and Rachel Sizemore.
