The Reduced Fee Dental Initiative kicks off

Washtenaw County was one of the last counties to have a county-wide dental clinic for uninsured or underinsured individuals. With this recognition, the WHI developed a pilot program designed to test a safety net dental program for county residents. In June, the Reduced Fee Dental Initiative began to enroll patients without dental coverage. Patients would directly pay participating dentists a reduced fee based on the patients’ income.
