Robbins Dental—Elkhart office only


The Robbins Dental Clinic at Healthy Beginnings (Elkhart office only) continues to provide high-quality pediatric dental services and referrals to the community. We offer routine preventative services, as well as, restorative work, in Spanish as well. 60% of our clientele are Spanish speaking.

In 2016, we served 4,092 people of those, providing 4,862 separate points of contact. Almost 82% of our clients are on Medicaid. 12% were self-pay using our sliding fee scale. The last 6% had private insurance. No one is ever refused services for inability to pay. This means at least 94% of our clients are low income, living in poverty. All clients and their parents are given educational information on oral hygiene and how it effects your health.

Although we have mainly Medicaid clientele, we are a self-sufficient program. In 2017, we will be going through the Meaningful Use process through Medicaid.  Please note that dental services are only provided in the Elkhart office.
