WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) -- Bridge Community Clinic in Wausau is holding an open house today to show off their newly expanded dental clinic.
The funding for the expansion comes from grants under the Affordable Care Act, and goes along with a similar expansion of the medical side of the Wausau facility. Dental director Georgia Fischer says Bridge offers everything you need in a dental office. "Preventative care with our hygienists, we have exams and x rays and cleanings and fillings and extractions, and a wide variety of services that are found in general dental practice settings."
The clinic is a federally qualified non-profit and Fischer says they do not turn away patients if they need to pay out of pocket or through state insurance. "They are very welcome to call to schedule an appointment, and talk with a patient financial advocate if they so so choose. Insured, uninsured, underinsured, Medicaid families."
The open house runs today from 3 to 7 pm. Fischer says they're ready to start taking patients as well. "Our main phone number is 715-848-4884, and anyone who answers the phone will be able to direct you or assist you with any questions you may have."
