Dental Clinic Closing

January 22, 2015 9:00 AM

Hello all,

I was contacted by a couple of consituents regarding the dental clinic - in Merital Hospital closing.  I was able to find out the following information - I hope it helps.  Denise



            The Max W. Pohle dental clinic, located within Meriter Hospital, will be closing their doors at the end of June this year, but until then business will go on as usual. They will not leave anyone in the middle of treatment. If they have not already sent out letters to their patients, I'm sure one will be forthcoming very shortly to inform them of the impending changes and how they will be transferring their patients of record to Access Community Health Centers Dental Clinics. This transfer will take place this summer and as I understand it, ACHC has and is still in the process of hiring dentists in preparation for caring for this additional patient load.

            There is another free dental clinic in Madison called Madison Dental Initiative, located on E. Washington Avenue. It is a small non-profit trying desperately to help serve our community's urgent dental needs on a minuscule budget. Dentists and staff volunteer their time to treat those who do not have the funds to get dental care otherwise. They are doing as much as possible with what they have and really need as much support as our community can give them.
            I am happy to answer any further questions anyone may have and if I can't, I will direct you to the people who can answer. I hope this is helpful.
Best regards,

Debra DeNure, RDH
Dental Health Coordinator
