Ewen Dental Clinic Now Accepting Patients

Michigan Community Dental Clinics is pleased to announce the opening of our 27th public dental center in Ewen located at 20106 State Highway M-28. The center is currently open Monday through Thursday from 8:00-4:30. New patients can call 877-313-6232 to register and make their first appointment.

The dental center is staffed by four full-time employees; Dr. Kenneth Mattson who graduated from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 1983 and spent most of his career in the Findlay, Ohio area. Improving patients understanding of good oral health, dental treatment, and providing quality care have always been his major goals in the dental office. He had more recently been providing care in the norther Lower Peninsula when this opportunity arose to lead the Ewen dental team. He noted the greatest reward in being a dentist is helping patients gain the confidence that comes from healthy and beautiful smiles. Other staff at the center includes Carrie Jurek, Registered Dental Hygienist, Abbie Pestka, Dental Assistant and Bobbie Hautamaki, Receptionist.

Michigan Community Dental Clinic, Inc. (MCDC) on behalf of the Western UP Health Department operates the Dental Center. The mission of MCDC is to create and expand access to ever-improving, quality dental care for children and adults who have Medicaid and Healthy Michigan Plan, or low-income, uninsured individuals. Although, the center also accepts those with commercial insurance, encouraging all residents to establish a dental home. The center provides complete dental care for the entire family – oral exams, cleanings, fillings, crowns, dentures, fluoride treatment, emergency treatment, and root canals. The care provided is customized to meet the individual needs of each patient, and is offered in a patient-centered atmosphere with exceptional customer service. For more information on the center, or to register as a patient, call 877-313-6232 or visit Michigan Community Dental Clinics.
