Burlington Dental Society Supports Open Arms Dental Expansion

Under the Open Arms Free Clinic organization, the Open Arms Dental Program started in 2015 for low-income, uninsured residents of Walworth County. Open Arms expanded dental services in 2018 with grant support from the Wisconsin Department of Public Health to serve Medicaid-enrolled children and adults with disabilities. To complement the volunteer dental providers, the organization now has a hired staff including a program coordinator, dental hygienist, dental assistant and 0.2 FTE Dentists. With the expansion, there were 385 unique patients seen in 2018 (129 new including 37 children and 70 adults with disabilities). The value of services completed estimated to $288,308 that we provided at no cost to the patients.
 
Open Arms Dental Program is the ONLY FREE and MEDICAID general dental provider in Walworth County. We are thrilled to receive endorsed support from the longest running professional dental society serving Walworth County.
