"Lacey* is a 58-year-old woman from Alachua County. She has Medicaid and takes the Medicaid bus to ACORN for all her visits, which usually results in a long wait for the bus to return after her dental treatment procedures. She needed two crowns and unfortunately Medicaid would not cover them. With our sliding scale fees, she was able to afford them and move forward in her dental treatment.
"Recently, she told our front desk that she has a lot of anxiety with riding the Medicaid-provided transportation and she appreciates the accommodations we made for her to get both of her crowns done at the same time, so that she would have less visits, something we typically are not able to do."
