Free Day at the Dentist - for Seniors


"The Oral Health Task Force is a homegrown solution unique to Cook County that works to provide dental care to the children of Cook County and the Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa in conjunction with Grand Marais Family Dentistry. The Task Force provides community education on the importance of early preventative care and provides financial assistance through a generous sliding fee scale that makes dental care more affordable and accessible, including transportation to appointments if necessary. The OHTF began as a program of the Foundation and recently moved to the Sawtooth Mountain Clinic (August 2020) to ensure the program’s sustainability – this is great news for the residents of Cook County."

North Shore Morning host, CJ Heithoff talks with OHTF Chair, Paul Nelson about a new pilot program – a “Free Day at the Dentist for Seniors”.
