MEDICAL: From minor illnesses and injuries to complex chronic health conditions, our talented team of medical providers and specialists care for people of all ages. We have one goal. To help you manage your health to live healthier and happier.

BEHAVIORAL: Many people experience stress and anxiety, which makes it hard to be happier at home, work and school. Some have substance abuse problems that can affect your well-being. Upper Great Lakes’ professional therapists and counselors can help you learn to cope with life’s challenges through one-on-one sessions in a familiar setting.

Dental Health Services

Twice-a-year dental exams are the best way to stop tooth decay and prevent oral diseases from getting worse. You’ll receive a cleaning to remove plaque and tartar and an oral exam of your teeth, gums, and mouth. Some visits may include x-rays.
The dentist may take x-rays of your teeth to check for areas of decay and bone loss not visible during a routine exam. Typically patients have one dental x-ray per year.
We offer dental sealants for adults and kids. This thin plastic coating is placed on the biting surface of permanent molars to protect them from decay. We also apply fluoride varnishes to strengthen kids’ enamel and protect against decay.

If you have severe decay, impacted teeth, periodontal disease, alignment issues or have experienced tooth trauma, our dental team will evaluation your condition and perform an extraction if necessary.

We can restore your smile and prevent remaining teeth from shifting by fitting you for partial or complete dentures. We’ll work together to create a plan that works for you.

UGL can help you alleviate dental pain by repairing cavities and strengthening teeth with fillings and crowns.
