More residents in our area are now eligible to receive services at the Washtenaw County Dental Clinic in Ypsilanti.  

The clinic that serves many people who are uninsured or low-income is now accepting all types of Medicaid, including Blue Cross Complete

Susan Cerniglia is a spokesperson for the county's health department.  

"We're estimating probably somewhere around 8,000 folks in the area that might have that plan are now eligible for services at the dental clinic."

The clinic is celebrating its second anniversary today.  Since its opening, it's had over 10,000 patient visits.
