Affordable Dental Care of Madison will host a groundbreaking ceremony for its new clinic on Thursday, June 27.

Affordable Dental Care of Madison will soon have a new home as it looks to continue its mission to increase access to oral health care in a new space at 1709 Aberg Ave. The non-profit will be hosting a groundbreaking ceremony for its new clinic on Thursday, June 27, 3-4 p.m.

Affordable Dental Care (ADC) has raised more than $1.2 million for the clinic which will feature eight treatment rooms, a conference room, a larger break room space, individual employee office space, a kid’s area and more lab and sterilization space. It will be able to serve around 5,000 patients per year. ADC is looking to move into the new space in November.

“Thanks to generous contributions by the community, we can break ground on our larger clinic,” said Affordable Dental Care Executive Director Areli Estrada in a press release on Monday. “This space will not only fill a void for dental care on the North Side of Madison but also increase health equity in the greater Madison area.”

The ceremony will include remarks from supporters and community leaders including Deputy Mayor Dr. Linda Vakunta, Shannon Semmerling of Delta Dental of Wisconsin, Alder Amani Latimer Burris, Charles Tubbs of Dane County Emergency Management and Paula Tran of Wisconsin Department of Health Services. Mexican snacks and ice cream from local vendors will be served.

The approximately 4,000-square-foot clinic was designed by Plunkett Raysich Architects and will be built by Advanced Building Corporation. The commercial space was secured by Plato Real Estate and is owned by Alexander Company.
