Charity Spotlight: Fordland Clinic

dental oliver

In the rural Ozarks, a health clinic means everything to so many. And one of the best is Fordland Clinic.

It’s a community health center that serves as a model of quality, affordable health care by offering comprehensive medical, dental, mental health, prevention and wellness services to everyone regardless of insurance and income.

Which is why the PGA Korn Ferry Tour’s Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper is proud to call Fordland Clinic one of its nearly 50 Ozarks children’s charities. It’s been on board since 2008.

With help from the PCCC, we have been able to extend care to more uninsured and underinsured children, both in the clinic setting and outside the clinic setting,” said Jennifer Piland, Marketing Coordinator for Fordland Clinic. “We have performed dental screenings at local schools and daycares, along with passing out information at health fairs, expos, and parades.”

That’s not all. Consider that Fordland Clinic, thanks to the PCCC, has:

  • Provided educational materials and child-sized toothbrushes at the events.
  • Purchased booster seats that make the dental visit more comfortable for the kids, as well as for dental staff. The seats raise and better position a child in the dental chair for treatment and X-ray imaging.
  • Remodeled its kids waiting room, by purchasing two wall toys that keep children occupied while waiting to be seen for medical, dental or behavioral services.

This for a clinic that served more than 8,000 patients through 22,041 clinic visits in 2019 at locations in Fordland, Kimberling City and Springfield.

“Our goals are to help remove barriers so everyone can receive affordable healthcare and provide our patients with the tools they need to live a healthier, longer and productive life,” Piland said. “We strive to provide our patients with personalized care. One of my favorite comments was from a patient who stated, “I felt my concerns were addressed in a way that was with passion and concern. I left feeling like a whole person, not a number.’”

Piland added, “Our providers use a patient-centered approach to healthcare, treating each patient as an entire person rather than an illness, providing a positive patient experience from entrance to exit, and doing their best to ensure positive outcomes for each person who walks through the door.”
