Michigan Community Dental Clinics, Inc. (MCDC) is a not-for-profit management services corporation, established in 2006, to allow the successful Dental Clinics North (DCN) model for delivery of public health dental services to expand to other areas of Michigan.
MCDC utilizes electronic patient records, digital radiography, state of the art dental equipment and compensation methods that encourage productivity, efficiency, and cost control. The result is a network of public health dental clinics that resemble private practice providing timely, much-needed services to a greater number of people. In addition, the financial model for the dental program is designed to break even so that the local Health Department does not have to provide support to the dental clinics.
The target populations served by the clinics are adults and children on Medicaid, as well as low income, uninsured individuals. Non-Medicaid clients are offered a reduced fee schedule equivalent to the Delta Dental PPO rates. Surplus funds allow for the establishment of the Dental Assistance Fund which is used to supplement the cost of care on a sliding percentage, based upon an individual’s income.
