What does a mental health agency in the city of Detroit and a mobile dental clinic have in common?  Normally nothing, but New Center Community Services partnering with Dental Care Mobile has opened a dental clinic inside of the mental health agency located on the west side of the city for those they currently serve as well as individuals and families in neighboring communities.  Opening February 6, 2017, NCCS began offering complete dental and referral services.  Delta Dental and Medicaid Dental benefits are accepted.
