In an effort to provide dental care to our citizens in Branch, Hillsdale and St. Joseph Counties, the Community Health Agency has formed a partnership with My Community Dental Centers (MCDC). MCDC is a non-profit organization who operates numerous dental centers across Michigan in partnership with local health departments, such as ours.
In January 2008, the Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Community Health Agency, in partnership with MCDC opened the first Public Health dental clinic in our tri-county region. In March 2011, the partnership expanded its operations by opening a second dental clinic. During fiscal year 2017, two more public health dental centers were opened in Coldwater and Sturgis. All four dental centers serve individuals on Medicaid, under-insured, uninsured, or commercial insurance.
