MDCMC Receives Seal-A-Smile Grant

Wisconsin health officials announced Ministry Door County Medical Center’s (MDCMC) Dental Clinic is one of 38 organizations that will receive a total of nearly $600,000 in school-based sealant program grants. The grants will be applied during the upcoming school year to provide dental sealants to low-income children in 59 counties. The grants were made available through the Wisconsin Seal-A-Smile program.

Tanya Fischer, MDCMC Dental Clinic manager, said, “The Schools participating will be Sturgeon Bay, Southern Door and Algoma. We will be doing exams on second and third graders this fall and will be partnering with the NWTC Hygiene students to help place the sealants on those children that are in need of sealants.”

Andy Boettcher, DCMC Foundation, was excited to share that the Dental Clinic was awarded $1,509 to help with the Seal-A-Smile program for our area.
