Wisconsin Needs More Smiles

Dentist with young patient

More smiles change everything.


Wisconsin needs more smiles!

  • Almost one-third of Wisconsinites do not regularly visit a dentist

  • Emergency department care for dental complaints costs up to $2.1 billion a year nationally

  • 1 in 5 children go without dental care


We do not accept this as a reality.


Since we opened our doors in 2009, More Smiles Wisconsin — formerly Madison Dental Initiative (MDI) — has always been more than just a dental clinic.

More Smiles WI is a hybrid non-profit utilizing both volunteers and paid providers to provide dental services to the impoverished population of Dane County. We serve all low-income individuals ages 8 and over. We believe in long-term solutions to the access to care problem, thus emphasizing education and prevention to our patients.

Our staff and volunteers work to:

  • remove worry from struggling families

  • prevent missed work days

  • restore confidence to the unemployed

  • provide hope to the homeless

  • reduce pain for veterans

In short, we don’t just provide dental care, we work to change lives.

If you need dental care, please call our Patient Care Coordinator: 608-665-2752


Help us create a brighter and happier Wisconsin.
