The Northwest Colorado Dental Coalition will begin to dissolve its business March 1 and Northwest Colorado Health will begin taking over services in Craig.
Northwest Colorado Health and the Northwest Colorado Dental Coalition have been working together for the past 18 months to find a long term solution to the growing need for consistent, affordable oral health services in Northwest Colorado.
The Northwest Colorado Dental Coalition has been in existence since 1993 with a mission to provide essential dental care and education to low-income residents of Northwest Colorado.
Northwest Colorado Health has been in operation since 1964 and just recently began providing integrated preventative oral health services in its Community Health Centers. In 2016 Northwest Colorado Health gained the necessary approval from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to provide comprehensive dental services at all sites, including the 485 Yampa Avenue clinic.
Individuals seeking oral health care at the Northwest Colorado Dental Coalition should continue to call 970-824-8000 to schedule their appointments.
