To the editor:


Access to dental care can be difficult to come by for low-income families in our community, and MICA’s Story County Dental Clinic (SCDC) was created to meet that need. The SCDC is a full-service clinic offering affordable care to patients with Medicaid or who are uninsured. While the clinic serves emergency needs by performing extractions, crowns or fillings, it also provides routine exams and cleanings.


Through the United Way of Story County, MICA is able to provide services at the clinic, fluoride varnishes and child dental services, as well as food through the Story County Emergency Food Pantry, and family development services via the Steps to Success program. None of this would be possible without the community’s support through their donations to the LIVE UNITED campaign. Even small donations can ease our neighbors’ burdens, so please consider making a gift this year to support wellness and health in our community.
