Our Purpose...We provide financial assistance to those in care settings and senior apartments who require care, services or support but have exhausted all other potential funding sources and do not have the financial resources to pay.
Success of our Mobile Dental Clinics...
Thanks to the State of Utah, Department of Health, Division of Family Health and Preparedness, Bureau of Primary Care, Office of Primary Care and Rural Health grants we have received, we have been able to change the lives of seniors in Davis, Salt Lake, Utah and Weber Counties for the better. Paying by the hour for services rendered rather than per procedure, SCCF saved a total of $58,411 from February 1, 2015 through December 31, 2016. Seniors participate in their care by paying a flat hourly rate (percentage of the hourly charge) dependent upon their income. We received a total of $19,203.63 in client co-payments.
Through this period, we served 412 new seniors through 880 encounters with our mobile dental clinics. Below is a chart that depicts the incomedemographics of the seniors served.

As you can see from the chart above the most requested services are dental/dentures including the mobile dental clinic, the requested assistance account for 82% of the services we provide. Additionally, through our mobile dental clinics, we are able to stretch our donations much farther than before we started our clinics.
