VINA accepting new patient applications for September appointments

VINA Community Dental Center is accepting applications for new patients at their low-cost family dentistry clinic in Brighton for appointments in September.

In order to qualify, patients need to be a resident of Livingston County, have limited income (225 percent or less of the Federal Poverty Level) and no dental insurance. Appointments for dental care or hygienist visit are only $25.

Applications and eligibility are available at, or visit the clinic at 400 E. Grand River Ave., just east of downtown Brighton in front of Brighton United Methodist Church.

In 2018, VINA served over 1,400 patients and provided dental services totaling over $370,000.

VINA uses volunteer dentist specialists, assistants and hygienists to augment a small part-time staff. Appointment wait time, after application approval, is as short as two weeks, shorter for emergencies.

VINA Community Dental Clinic was started in 2008 as a low-cost alternative for those unable to afford dental care and insurance.

Teeth and oral health are such an important part of everyone’s lives with regards to overall health and self-esteem. However, many deal with problems regarding their teeth every day. By maintaining good oral health and do a wisdom teeth removal, VINA tries to give their patients not only a smile but well-being and confidence.

VINA’s mission is to provide quality, affordable dental care to Livingston County residents with limited finances and little to no access to dental care while upholding the professional standards of dentistry in a concerned and compassionate way. Learn more about VINA at
