Local Dentist Candidate For ‘Fulfilling Iowa’s Need For Dentists’

Charles City, Iowa – Delta Dental and the Iowa Department Development Group have partnered with Charles City Area Development Corporation in Fulfilling Iowa’s Need for Dentists.  

The sponsored candidate is Doctor Michael Hemming of Central Park Dentistry.

Hemming is eligible for FIND because Floyd County is a Health Professional Shortage area.  

The Area Development Corporation is needing to raise a minimum of $5,000 in pledges before next Friday. If raised, Delta Dental will match this with $50,000 and a $25,000 state appropriation.  If awarded the funding, Hemming must devote 35 percent of patient load to the high-risk or under served, which is Medicaid, people older than 65, the uninsured and ages 0-3.
