Ministry Door County Medical Center Dental Clinic Annual Appeal
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Have you ever had an excruciatingly painful toothache and canceled everything to go to the dentist? But what if you couldn’t? What if you had to live with that pain day in and day out because you couldn’t afford to go to the dentist? You couldn’t sleep, you couldn’t eat...you would be miserable. Sadly, that is the reality for hundreds of children in our community that cannot afford to go to the dentist. No one should have to live with this pain, especially a child. With your help we can fix this and alleviate the pain for these children.
Since 1999, Ministry Door County Medical Center Dental Clinic has been working diligently to bring healthy smiles to the faces of underprivileged children. As the only dental clinic in our area that accepts Medicaid patients, the dedicated dentists, dental hygienists and volunteers of the MDCMC Dental Clinic are able to help over 1000 children each year. That’s over 1000 children every year that no longer have to suffer through the pain of an excruciating tooth ache and the disease and illness that comes along with it. This is a good start, but we need to keep going forward until every child in Door County receives the quality dental care they deserve.
Beginning in October, the Ministry Door County Medical Center Dental Clinic implemented a plan to expand services. This expansion will allow the clinic to treat 500 more children annually and will provide care for adults for the first time. This wonderful news does not come without a cost and we will need to raise over $125,000 annually to cover the deficits that Medicaid reimbursements do not pay for. To reach this goal, we need the help and support of our community. Included with this letter you will find a brochure that gives more detail on the MDCMC Dental Clinic and also gives you information on how you can contribute to this very worthwhile program.
This holiday season, I ask that you help the Ministry Door County Medical Center Dental Clinic continue to do amazing things for the underprivileged children of our community. With your help we can restore the smiles and hopes for these children.
