A new grant will support a new NorthPoint dental clinic. The Hennepin County Board approved a $600,000 grant from Delta Dental of Minnesota Foundation to open the Dr. John Williams dental clinic at NorthPoint Health and Wellness. The new clinic will meet the high demand of residents seeking affordable dental care, providing an additional 2,300 annual dental visits per year. By providing increased access to primary oral health care, NorthPoint hopes to reduce health disparities among residents in this area.
