Genesee, Saginaw counties join Healthy Kids Dental July 1

LANSING, Mich., June 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Michigan Governor Jennifer M. Granholm and the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) today announced an expansion of the state's Healthy Kids Dental program to include 80,000 children in Genesee and Saginaw counties, bringing the total number of Michigan children covered to more than 280,000 children. The expansion takes effect July 1, 2008.

"Since 2000 when it began as a pilot program, Healthy Kids Dental has proven to be one of the nation's most effective public-private partnerships in delivering care to some of our state's most vulnerable residents."

The program is a partnership between MDCH, Delta Dental, and the Michigan Dental Association and is available to Medicaid-eligible recipients under the age of 21 in 61 of Michigan's 83 counties. Services include oral exams, teeth cleaning, x-rays, and cavity fillings.
