Community Clinics of Manitowoc County, Inc. (CCMC) is the new name of the non-profit corporation formerly known as Healthy Teeth Healthy Communities of Manitowoc County. CCMC’s mission is to provide professional, compassionate primary health care services to Manitowoc County residents unable to access care due to financial limitations. We are building off the strong foundation of the Healthy Teeth program which began in 2006 under Healthiest Manitowoc County.
Healthy Teeth started as a school-based mobile dental clinic that provides comprehensive primary dental services, including x-rays, cleanings, fillings and extractions to low-income uninsured and Medicaid eligible students. We started with six schools and are now providing services at every public school in Manitowoc County.
With the success of the kids program, in the summer of 2009 we started to serve low-income adults with donated space at Bellin Health Care Clinic, funding from a United Way Venture Grant and assistance from local dentists. Seeing the tremendous need a full-time adult dental clinic was established. Healthy Teeth became its own non-profit entity in 2010. Healthy Teeth found a permanent location at the Holy Family Memorial York Street Clinic and received funds from the West Foundation and Delta Dental to expand services, which now include dentures and root canals. Last year we provided dental care to almost 9,000 children and adults in Manitowoc County.
Understanding that the need does not just stop at dental care, we are now fundraising to begin providing medical primary care. Our plan is to initially provide medical services two days per week with a nurse practitioner. Subject to successful fund-raising efforts, we hope to begin providing medical care this summer.
Your donations to continue and expand services are appreciated.
