When Community Dental was announced to be opening a clinic in Wright County on the ground floor of the Wright County Government Center to help the underserved people of the region, the hope was to have the clinic extensively used. In the first month of operation, the clinic has served more than 500 patients and the data gleaned from the patients has shown the clinic is hitting the targeted populations.
Of the patients to date, 91 percent were enrolled in public assistance programs, 5 percent were uninsured, 5 percent had commercial insurance, 47 percent were children under age 21, 21 percent were emergency procedures and 92 percent were new patients.
Due to the overwhelming response, bookings are continuing to fill up. If you or someone you know is in need of dental care, make an appointment by calling (763) 270-6900.
