Ascension Dental Center is a collaborative effort of CAP Services, Delta Dental of Wisconsin and St. Michael’s Hospital in addressing the need for access to dental care by low-income individuals.

Established in 2002, Ascension Dental Center (formerly Ministry Dental Center) grew from a partnership of Saint Michael’s Hospital, Delta Dental of Wisconsin and CAP Services. The vision for the center is to offer a “dental home,” where patients continue to seek both treatment and preventive care to maintain and improve their oral health. Ascension Dental serves persons enrolled in Medicaid or BadgerCare who live in Portage and Waupaca counties.

There continues to be great demand for the center’s services. There are about 26,000 persons enrolled in Medicaid or BadgerCare in the center’s service area and the waiting list for services generally averages about 1,400 people.

The center continually seeks ways to meet this demand through expansions and increased efficiency. It has added a dentist, more dental hygienists, dental assistants and support staff.
