For every new patient that comes through our doors, we make a donation to More Smiles Wisconsin to provide dental care to community members in need.
Madison Dental Initiative (now known as More Smiles Wisconsin) was started by the Salvation Army in 2009 to further help families in need. MSW relies on donations and volunteers to function. Those who give their time find joy in helping treat a homeless child’s tooth infection or a homeless veteran’s advanced periodontal disease.
Madison Family Dental has been honored to help MDI provide patient care by volunteering on a monthly basis. Dr. Lindsey Heim, Dr. Lori Veerman, and dental assistants Valerie and Rita have all spent time working with homeless patients at the clinic and plan to continue doing so in the future. In 2017, Dr. Lori Veerman started serving on the Board of Directors for Madison Dental Initiative.
