Ten years and 18,000 appointments after it first opened, VINA Community Dental Center is celebrating its anniversary 5:30-8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13, at Oaken Transformation Sculpture & Poetry Walk, 6893 Grand River Ave. in Brighton, and inviting the public to join in the festivities.
A presentation begins at 6 p.m., with speakers highlighting the work of the clinic and the continued need for its services. Guests will enjoy the grounds, and light refreshments will be served. Oaken Transformations Sculpture and Poetry Walk is an out-of-doors art tour showcasing the work of poets and artists with ties to Michigan.
Established in 2008, VINA Dental provides affordable dental care to low-income, uninsured adults in Livingston County, an underserved group that has limited access to this important type of health care. The non-profit outreach facility gives people access to dental care and education, and provides dental education materials, oral cancer screenings, and promotes balanced nutrition and healthy food selections.
This event is a way for VINA to thank the Livingston County community for its support that makes it possible for the center to continue providing dental services to those in need.
