Both, Dr. Roberto and I, really believe in giving back to the community, and we do a lot. The first thing we do is, we see Medicaid patients and Iowa wellness patients. These are government programs in Iowa. Twenty-five percent of all children in Iowa are on Medicaid. So, if dentists do not take Medicaid, and see these children, they will not be able to have a dentist. So, we are really compassionate about that, and we love kids, so we do that.
I started a free children's clinic here in Muscatine, in the Public Health Office here in Muscatine, over 10 years ago. It was for children that were slipping through the cracks. They didn't have any insurance. They weren't on Medicaid. They were not getting any dental care at all here in our town. I had three or four other dentists, that we all volunteered our time on Friday mornings, and we worked out of the Unity Public Health Clinic.
We just gave our time and helped children fix their teeth. It was very rewarding. Now, the University of Iowa, part of the agreement was that they would take over it when they came to town. I, also, with my husband and I, we started the West Liberty Youth Dream Catchers. It's just to help children live their dreams. It's for children that are on the free or reduced lunch program, and are the first in their family to go to college.
In our town of West Liberty, half of the children are eligible for our program. We haven't raised that much money, or had that many volunteers, but we have at least five children each year that we ... teachers recommend from third grade. They work with volunteer mentors, and we raise money, and give them a scholarship to go to college for all four years, when they graduate. So, it's really exciting. We're helping children live their dreams. It's wonderful.
Over the years, Dr. Carol and her son have worked to provide beneficial dental care and more for those in need. They remain passionate about contributing their efforts, and have so far accomplished the following:
