The Door County Community Foundation recently awarded the Door County Medical Center Foundation a Sustainability Grant from the Health and Human Needs Fund, Elizabeth “Betty” Lawrence Human Services Fund, Bernice & Gene Hawkins Charitable Fund, and the Ruth & Hartley Barker Memorial Fund for the Door County Medical Center Dental Clinic.  Door County Medical Center Dental Clinic provides oral health care to the youth and adults of Door and Kewaunee Counties. The clinic serves those who are on Medicaid and/or those with no dental insurance that are low-income with no dental home.

“The lack of oral health care continues to be a serious epidemic throughout Door County,” said Grace Rossman, board member of the Door County Community Foundation.  “Ministry Door County Medical Center Dental Clinic aims to improve the oral health of low income people in Door County by providing a dental home for routine care.”
