In 2003, 4 local dentists started Tri-County Dental Clinic to serve patients in our area who are not able to be seen at traditional clinics due to their income or insurance status. With primarily volunteer dentists, we've seen over 165,000 patients since then!
Our Robert Glass Focus on the Children Program began in 2009 in order to provide care to area children who qualify for their school's free/reduced lunch program. Utilizing our 3-chair dental bus, most treatment can be done right at their school which reduces the amount of class time missed. We've had 20,350 children participate in the program over 10 years!
Through our Wetherbee Orthodontics Program, children coming through the Robert Glass Focus on the Children Program with severe malocclusion can receive FREE orthodontia. This treatment is life-changing for the children in the program and has resulted in over 80 children having brighter, more confident smiles.
Area low-income veterans can find a dental home at Tri-County Dental with our Operation Dental Care program. Many of the vets we have seen since 2016 have not been to the dentist in several years and are living with dental pain. We believe the sacrifices they have made for our country should not include poor dental health. In partnership with the Fox Valley Veterans Council, we now have 88 veterans receiving continuing dental care through this program.
We can continue these amazing services to our community with the help of donors like you!
