Our staff of caring professionals offers quality dental and eye care to people in the Midlands who are uninsured or underinsured. 

Children's Dental Clinic:

More than 200 volunteer dentists and hygienists from around the Midlands generously give their time at our clinic. For over 50 years, they have served the children of this community.

The Children’s Dental Program provides a dental home for eligible school-age children between 5 and 18 years of age. Through our partnership with Midland's School District school nurses, we work together to bring awareness of our services to parents of eligible children in our community.

On average, we treat more than 1,500 uninsured students annually at WellPartners Children's Dental clinic. The Children's Dental Clinic has two Certified Dental Assistants working in each of our two clinics. Each clinic sees children four mornings per week during the school year to provide comprehensive dental care in partnership with community volunteers treating in our clinics and specialists within their own practices. For six weeks during the summer months, the Children’s Dental clinic provides preventive services in partnership with volunteers from Midlands Technical College.
