I was very impressed with the services at the veteran’s dental clinic that Northwest Michigan Health Services provides.  They were able to pull everything together to get rides for me to the clinic. Everybody involved in that "ROCKS"! I was particularly impressed with the dentist and his skills; he just got right in there and went to work. I was also very surprised with his people skills, he made me feel very comfortable during the whole process.  I feel very fortunate and grateful for the services that you all are doing for me. I could never have been able to afford the special dentures I needed on my own.  It's always hard for me to accept such extensive or really, any sort of help. As a Veteran it's just part of our DNA to be on the other side of grace and we are always the last people to ask for help, so when we do receive it we don't always show the appropriate amount of gratefulness, so I just wanted to make sure to tell you and everybody that I am extremely grateful. Thank you!”

All the staff we interacted with were kind and patient when I brought in two active preschoolers for their appointments, and they loved the nurse and medical provider.  I was impressed that we also met with the behavioral health therapist who helped assess their development, and the community health worker, who connected us to community resources.  It is a real team approach to care!”

We at NMHSI want to assure our patients and public that we are here for you. We are responding to rapidly-evolving recommendations regarding COVID-19 to assure the safety of our healthcare staff and community. We remain open and available to serve medical and behavioral health patients. We are pre-screening patients who present with fevers and cough, and triaging them out of our clinics for the most appropriate testing and follow-up. Responding to the recommendations of the Michigan Dental Association, we are now able to provide preventive dental services again, and are scheduling our existing patients whose appointments were cancelled previously. As always our medical, dental and behavioral health staff are available to our patients in our clinics and by phone at (231) 947-0351.
