PROVIDING ACCESS TO
DENTAL CARE FOR OUR COMMUNITY.

The United Way of Northwest Michigan, in collaboration with the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, is pleased to provide access to dental care for our community. We are a top-notch training facility, where local volunteer dentists work together with pre-doctoral dental interns to provide dental services to for those who can’t find help anywhere else. We focus on children, pregnant women, veterans, and those with developmental or cognitive disabilities.

United We Smile Offers These Dental Services

United We Smile is proud to offer dental services for our community, often with little or no out-of-pocket cost expenses. These services include X-rays, fillings, cleanings, extractions, dentures, partial dentures, crowns, bridges, sealants, Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF), fluoride treatments, periodontal therapy, and more. With a commitment to improving your oral health, we work hard to provide access to quality care while ensuring patient comfort.

In addition, our community partners provide many in-house resources, so please let us know if you need help in other areas. We can connect you to parenting classes, support groups, and even assistance for food or housing.

We Make it Easy

United We Smile cares for those who need a little extra time in the chair because—let’s face it—going to the dentist can be a little scary. Need extra time? No problem. Our staff works closely with you to ensure we are prepared for your visit. We can accommodate special requests such as sensory issues, mobility aids, past trauma, or any other worries you may have – and we have two quiet rooms! We’ve customized our environment with you in mind, so give us a call and let us know how we can help.

Our Mission

United We Smile connects and mobilizes the caring power of our local community to advance the common good through health initiatives.

Our Interns

Meet some of our pre-doctoral dental interns from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry! Every couple weeks a new group of interns travels to us from Ann Arbor to complete four weeks of clinical rotation as part of their graduation requirements. They are always so excited to be here and look forward to serving our community of special patients. Besides providing quality dental care, we focus on learning how to work with patients who suffer from things like PTSD, behavior issues, dental anxiety, developmental disabilities, intellectual disabilities, mobility issues, challenging comorbidities, and more. If you have not been successful receiving care elsewhere, give us a try! We have many options and are committed to trying to make your visit more comfortable so you can enjoy a better quality of life.
