The ribbon cutting to open Waldo County Dental Care will be Monday, July 8, at 2 p.m.
The new office (on the first floor of 125 Northport Ave. the new building across Northport Avenue from the hospital) will provide dental care to qualified individuals in need.
And we believe the need is great.
There will be refreshments and tours following the ribbon’s cutting.
The Registered Dental Hygienist at Waldo County Dental Care will do dental cleanings, x-rays,
screenings, fluoride treatments, sealants, temporary fillings, oral health instruction, and a referral
for further care by a dentist, if needed.
To qualify, an individual must:
• not have seen a dentist in the past 12 months;
• live in Waldo County;
• meet federal income guidelines (for family of four that is $41,213); and
• be at least age 18.
Depending on the family’s income level, there is a sliding co-pay of between $10 and $20.
