Grand Junction Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cutting

Media Invitation

July 1, 2013

For Immediate Release

Beginning July 10th, Marillac Clinic and Primary Care Partners will join together to offer pediatric dental services.

Dr. Kate Hart, a pediatric dentist with Marillac Clinic for the past 5 years, will begin seeing patients at Western Colorado Pediatric Associates’ offices at 3150 N. 12th Street.  The pediatric practice is a division of Primary Care Partners.  

Uninsured patients, as well as those with Medicaid, CHP+, or Delta Dental will be accepted.

“Dental cavities are the most common chronic medical disease for children, 5 times more common than asthma,” said Dr. Mary Willy, pediatrician at Western Colorado Pediatric Associates.  

Nearly half of all children have cavities by the time they enter kindergarten, resulting in many hours lost of school absence. Early access to dental care has been found to reduce dental expenses by 40% if dental care is sought between ages 1 and 2 years.  

“The providers at Western Colorado Pediatric Associates are excited to announce the next step in providing an all-inclusive medical home to their patients and to all children in the community,” said Dr. Willy.  

Appointments will be available on Wednesdays and Thursdays. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call Marillac Dental Clinic at 298-6320.
