is a primary care medical and mental health clinic dedicated to providing affordable and accessible high quality health care services to the medically underserved population of Champaign County.
The Health Center expanded in late 2011 to include the SmileHealthy Dental Center
, which is dedicated to providing excellent oral health care to the underserved community.
A majority of the patients that come to Frances Nelson and SmileHealthy Dental Center have Medicaid; however, there are still many patients that do not have any form of insurance. For these patients, a sliding-fee discount program is available. Spanish-speaking staff and volunteers are available to assist our Spanish-speaking patients.
SmileHealthy Mobile/Head Start/Education works to improve the oral health of the underserved in Champaign County in providing preventive care, treatment, and education. Preventive care and treatment are made available at one of the many mobile clinics or their clinic at the Rantoul Head Start. Oral health is promoted by making free dental supplies, such as toothbrushes and paste, available to those in need. Additionally, the SmileHealthy Education Advocate works with schools and other outlets in the community in order to increase oral health knowledge.
