Project Description

During the last year, the Edgar County Dental Clinic (ECDC) had over 7,250 patient encounters.  The clinic continues to provide dental exams, fillings, extractions, crowns, denture services, and emergency procedures to uninsured and underinsured patients under the clinical direction of Dr. Renee DuChane. ECDC is also fortunate to have Dr. David Llewellyn providing much-needed extractions for patients who have teeth that cannot be saved.

Our hygiene department provides dental cleanings, fluoride treatments, sealants, and silver diamine fluoride (SDF) treatments.

  • School-based services continue to expand as more children become enrolled in the program each year. The school program currently serves 9 school districts (30 schools) in Edgar, Clark, and Vermilion Counties.
  • ECDC’s Community Oral Health Consultant is an asset in the community as she delivers oral health education programs in schools,  organizations, facilities, and at community events.
  • Our Oral Health Consultant also coordinates the WIC dental services, a special dental program for moms and children (birth to five years) who participate in the Edgar and Clark County WIC program.
