Door County Medical Center Dental clinic earns state grant

Helping you get affordable dental care is like pulling teeth sometimes, but the State of Wisconsin is helping numb the pain with grants to several providers including the Door County Medical Center Dental Clinic. Fourteen non-profit dental clinics received approximately $5.1 million from the state earlier this week to increase access to dental care. Each grant ranged from $59,000 to $150,000. The Door County Medical Center Dental Clinic has slowly been able to expand its services over the year thanks in part to the grants, but they still need help to meet the demand of the community.


A non-profit dental clinic like Door County Medical Center’s primarily serves children and families in need, including Medicaid members, people who have low income, people with disabilities, and people who are uninsured. Fischer says some of their programs have allowed them to take their services into schools and out on the road in order to serve more people.
