During the Covid-19 pandemic, VFD has our program participants’ health at the forefront of how we move forward. We will be following the lead of the American Dental Association (ADA) and the Michigan Dental Association who advise our volunteer dentists (providers). As of May 29, 2020, many of our volunteer dental offices began seeing patients for regular dental care on a limited basis.
Our providers are not able to see VFD patients until they are caught up with their own backlog of patients. If you are having a dental emergency please call us at our office number 231.773.1360. We will continue to be in communication with our providers, program participants, and will report more information as it becomes available. Stay safe and healthy.
