About Marshfield Clinic Ladysmith Dental Center
Ladysmith Dental Center was established November 1, 2002 when Family Health Center of Marshfield, Inc. and Marshfield Clinic acquired the Ladysmith dental practice of Blane Christman, D.D.S. and Associates. The Center was made possible through a partnership between these three entities as well as the State Department of Health and Family Services and federal and state agencies.
This unique public and private partnership was created to help address the growing need for dental care in underserved areas. In less than one year, Ladysmith Dental Center has seen patients from 42 Wisconsin counties and 6 states. A dental triage system helps accommodate the far-reaching needs for both acute and preventive dental care.
A sliding fee scale gives patients with limited incomes and no insurance the ability to obtain the dental services they need. The Center also works with government programs including Medicaid and BadgerCare.
The 8,840-square-foot, state-of-the-art dental facility in downtown Ladysmith includes 17 operatory rooms; a dental lab; sterilization rooms; consultation rooms; panoramic X-ray equipment and photo labs; business office; and reception and patient waiting area.
The Center has five full-time dentists, five dental hygienists, and 16 support staff. Two additional dentists provide care on a flexible, part-time basis.
