Wheelchair bound patients of NorthLakes Community Clinic now have a safer option for their dental care. In February, 2019 a new wheelchair lift was installed in the clinic, allowing wheelchair patients to remain in their chair for their dental care. This is one of the only lifts in northern Wisconsin. The lift is installed in an oversized dental operatory, also ensuring there is enough space for wheelchair patients to maneuver. The purchase was made possible through grants from the Christopher & Dana Reeves Foundation, Delta Dental of Wisconsin and numerous community donations.
