New dental clinic opens in Boys and Girls Club

A new dental clinic is now open and seeing patients in the Boys and Girls Club of Dane County.

Located on Jenewein Road in Fitchburg, the program started this week by More Smiles Wisconsin will offer low-cost dental services to families that may not otherwise be able to afford dental care.

“It’s my understanding that this is the only BGC youth development center in the state that’s going to have a full-time dentist assigned to a facility like this,” said Boys and Girls Club of Dane County CEO Michael Johnson.

The clinic accepts BadgerCare and Medicaid and can also work with uninsured patients.

More Smiles also has a dental clinic at the Salvation Army on East Washington Avenue. According to a news release, the organization is hoping to open a third clinic on the north side of Madison, eventually expanding to surrounding counties.

An official ribbon-cutting for the clinic at the Boys and Girls Club will be held Thursday, Feb. 1.

The clinic is still looking for volunteers and monthly donations.
