Macomb County Oral Health Coalition
In 2014, the Macomb County Health Department recognized a growing need to draw support from all community groups to advocate for better oral health in the community. Consequently, in 2015, the Macomb County Oral Health Coalition was launched. The coalition’s membership includes representatives from more than a dozen organizations working collaboratively to promote oral health in Macomb County.
All Macomb County residents have access to quality and affordable oral health services and oral health is integrated into their overall health and well-being.
The mission of the Macomb Oral Health Coalition is to improve the oral health of all people in Macomb County.
Promote oral health education, especially for early childhood; increase oral health literacy in Macomb County; develop prevention messaging; increase marketing for oral health prevention messages and access; promote the Healthy Kids Dental program in the county to providers and families.
To increase oral health services in community settings.
To advocate and promote oral health services and increase service sites and providers for the County’s special populations: children with special health care needs, homeless, mental health, and minorities.

Baker College Low Cost Dental Hygiene Services
Appointments for low-cost dental hygiene services are available this spring at Baker College’s Center for Dental Hygiene Education. The care is provided by students in the associate degree dental hygiene program under the supervision of licensed dentists and hygienists. The center is open to all in the community; documentation of financial need is not required. “These dental hygiene services are beneficial to community members and students,” said David Smith, a dentist and dental hygiene program director at Baker College of Clinton Township. “Community members can save hundreds of dollars on treatment, and students gain experience that prepares them for successful careers.”
He said the center’s low-cost services reduce the financial barrier for individuals to get dental hygiene services every six months as generally recommended. The low cost is especially helpful to those with higher risk of dental disease who require more frequent checkups.
