Delta Dental of Minnesota Foundation Grants $4.6 Million for New Dental Clinic at Hennepin County Medical Center!

The Hennepin County Board of Commissioners approved an agreement between the Delta Dental of Minnesota Foundation and the Hennepin Healthcare System to create a new dental clinic funded by a $4.6 million grant from the Delta Dental of Minnesota Foundation. In recognition of the leadership grant, the clinic will be named the Delta Dental Oral Health Center at HCMC.

The Delta Dental Oral Health Center at HCMC will be located in the new $220.8 million clinic and specialty building, which will consolidate HCMC’s existing downtown clinics in one state of the art, six-­‐story facility. The grant will also fund in-­‐clinic dental services for the highly complex patients who receive care in the HCMC Coordinated Care Clinic.

The Delta Dental Oral Health Center at HCMC will see and treat the 85% of HCMC’s dental patients who are covered by public programs, are uninsured, or qualify as low income residents. In addition, the clinic will provide enhanced patient-­‐centered care for all patients, especially children and people with special needs. The Delta Dental Oral Health Center at HCMC will increase oral health care access by approximately 60%, or an estimated additional 11,000 visits annually, for a total of 27,500 patient visits per year.
