VINA awarded $5,000 grant

A local organization that provides dental care for low-income Livingston County residents has been awarded a financial grant to assist with their mission.

VINA Community Dental Center has received $5,000 from the Michigan Dental Association Foundation for its Prevention Incentive Program.

 This program gives VINA patients a discount on all hygiene appointments. Patients only pay $10 for a cleaning, blood pressure check, fluoride treatment and exam with a dentist. The appointments are discounted to emphasize the importance of preventive care.

Routine hygiene appointments help catch dental problems early, often before a patient experiences any pain or discomfort. The program helps improve the oral health and quality of life of low-income adults in the community.

VINA staff, volunteers and board members will celebrate with MDA staff, donors and board members at an event this Friday.
