CHS was recently awarded a $30,000 grant from Delta Dental of Wisconsin to replace a panoramic X-ray machine and support outreach dental services to area Amish schools. Replacement of the PAN X-ray will ensure productivity in the clinic and help aid in the diagnosis and treatment of both children and adults.

“It was a great, great day when we received the award,” CHS Executive Director Thea O’Connor said. “With this grant funding, CHS is able to continue to provide critical dental services to those in need.” The new machine is now in place and in use.

Ann Boson, president of the Delta Dental Foundation, said they have partnered with CHS from its inception with dental care.

“We’re always looking to help with a new need or a new outreach,” she said. “This was kind of an emergency as the machine is necessary for CHS to provide service.”
In addition to the PAN X-ray, the grant will be used to reach out to the Amish community. Boson said it is a unique project which will provide education about oral care, fund screenings and refer those in highest need to the clinic.

“Rural communities like Beaver Dam have a tremendous need for dental care and we are proud to be working with CHS,” she said.

CHS provides dental services to low-income individuals on a sliding fee scale, including seniors and veterans. The clinic also provides care to families with Medicaid and BadgerCare coverage.
