Extra Point Sponsor:
VINA is a nonprofit dental clinic established in 2008 and located in Brighton, Michigan. All of the patients at VINA have no dental insurance and income at or below 225% of the Federal Poverty Level. The out-of-pocket cost of dental care is too great and many patients do not have access to affordable dental care without the services of VINA.
Many patients at VINA have not had dental care in years or even decades. Many experience frequent pain and other health complications from this lack of dental care. Oral health problems can prevent patients from receiving surgery or infection, taking a toll on overall health. VINA works to provide quality dental care and education to these underserved patients to improve health and quality of life.
VINA patients only pay $25 per appointment and $10 for routine hygiene visits. This reduced financial burden for patients helps restore smiles in the community. VINA is funded through special events, donations, and grants.
Services include: Oral Cancer Screenings & Oral Exams, Oral Surgery & Extractions, Fluoride Treatment, Cleanings, Fillings, X-Rays, Crowns
