“In 2014 I had a stroke and all my money went to my medical care. I was unable to work, as I could not stand for more than 20 – 25 minutes at a time without my walker. I moved from my long-time home and business in the UP to be near family.

Looking for a dentist while on Social Security, Disability, and VA Disability was difficult. My neighbor suggested VINA and I applied. It was a wonderful experience. I am so grateful for what I have and for the feeling of welcome from VINA. I had an efficient, kind experience at the clinic.

I have never met a single negative person there. The volunteers are fabulous, students and dentists are amazing. They always answer all my questions. The dental care has been wonderful, I needed two caps on my teeth and old fillings replaced. My mouth wouldn’t be my mouth without the generosity of VINA, I am thankful for all the people at the clinic. To have the help I got from VINA, oh my goodness, thank you, thank you, thank you.”
