Pleasant, Charlotte, Harrison, Monroe, Port Huron, Sidney, West Branch, Big Rapids, Hart, Manistee, Alpena and Marquette.  MCDC is a not-for-profit management services corporation, established in 2006, to allow the successful Dental Clinics North model for delivery of public health dental services to expand to other areas of Michigan. MCDC utilizes electronic patient records, digital radiography, state of the art dental equipment and compensation methods that encourage productivity, efficiency, and cost control. The result is a network of public health dental clinics that resemble private practice providing timely, much-needed services to a greater number of people.
