Care for the pearly whites is necessary and expensive. If you are having trouble feeding your family and/or paying your bills, dental care is often at the bottom of your list of needs. As reported in our past newsletter, many TCHP patients have gone without any type of dental care for four or more years and subsequently are in desperate need of dental treatment as well as preventative care. For several years, TCHP has been fortunate to have several local dentists generously donate their services for clinic patients in need of a simple extraction or minor dental work. You will find their names on page 3. While we are very thankful for this amazing gift of care, we have found that many clinic patients are years overdue for a cleaning, evaluation and often have a serious issue. We are happy to announce that a grant from the Kane County Riverboat Fund has provided resources for the official launch of the TCHP dental health pilot program. Clinic patients attend a dental hygiene class, conducted by John Mason, D.D.S., and dental hygienists, Amy Light and Trish Miller. Patients are then scheduled for appointments that included x-rays, cleanings and evaluations followed by additional treatment if needed. Classes and materials used for initial cleaning appointment are paid for through the Riverboat Fund grant. Funding for materials used in treatments beyond cleanings, is provided through grants from Bethany Lutheran Mission Development Fund, BlueCross/Blue Shield of IL, Gordon Flesch Co., Hansen-Furnas Foundation, The Alfred Bersted Foundation and The Blowitz Foundation. As with all of TCHP volunteers, the dental professionals receive no payment for their gift of care.

Welcome Mary Slade

TCHP welcomes our new Financial Manager, Mary Slade. Mary will be replacing Nancy Malek who has taken full time employment with the Office of the Attorney General of Illinois. We are delighted to have Mary on board to assist with the financial matters of the clinic. She comes to us with a background in public accounting and management with Arthur Andersen. More recently she has worked as a consultant providing accounting services to governmental entities. Mary lives in St. Charles with her husband, John and two teenage children, Andrew and Christine. Welcome!

Congratulations & Farewell Nancy Malek!

We would like to congratulate Nancy Malek, former Executive Director and Associate Director of TCHP on her new position as Auditor for the Illinois Attorney General's office. Nancy was Executive Director for TCHP from 2002 ­ 2006, and Assoc. Director from 2006 to September of 2009, during which time she completed her Masters in Accounting at Northern Illinois University. We are thankful for the exceptional leadership and expertise that she has brought to the clinic for the past seven years and know that she will be quite an asset in her new position. On behalf of the Board of Directors and the staff, we wish Nancy all the best.

Mrs. Santa is coming to town!!!

While good ole Santa Claus is making his list and checking it twice...... Mrs. Santa is planning a special visit to Tri City Health Partnership. That's right folks; Mrs. Santa will be on the front porch of the free clinic November 28th from 2 p.m. till 4:30 p.m. giving out her fresh baked cookies and coupons from Colonial Café and McDonalds. Santa believes there is something magical about her cookies; you will have the opportunity to decide for yourself. For those of you who have always wanted to take a peek inside the clinic, this is your chance to meet the staff, tour the facility and enjoy the holiday decorations. At 5:30 p.m. Mrs. Santa will join her jolly partner, Santa in the Electric Light Parade, which of course you will not want to miss.

Why Do You Volunteer At TCHP?

Pam Gossman, Nurse Practitioner "It provides me an opportunity to give back to my community. It is a great atmosphere to practice and deliver medicine care to those less fortunate." Wesley H. Ryd M.D. 42 yrs. In Family Practice, Retired "In the fall of 2002, I heard of a need for medical help at the free clinic through the Batavia Covenant Church. I was 2 years into retirement and missed the patient contact and interaction with medical personnel. As a Christ follower, I find that volunteering at TCHP gives me an excellent opportunity to help the sick and poor, as it commands us in the 25th chapter of Matthew. Volunteering and serving others gives meaning to my life." Frank Grill, Acupuncturist "I volunteer at TCHP because I don't want cost to be a barrier to reaching as many people as possible who could benefit from the services I offer. Also, to give back to the community that has so generously supported my endeavors." "You always provide a great service. I have been having acupuncture since May and feel much better. It has been very effective and is so nice of you to offer the services." "Acupuncture has been very helpful. It took care of all my neck pain."

St. Charles Country Club Classic Event a Great Success!

Craig and Darlene Morgan, Ann Van Thournout the event committee and club volunteers once again pulled off a first class function, resulting in a $65,725 contribution to TCHP. Funds are utilized to off-set operating expenses which include medications, medical supplies and equipment. It is impossible to adequately express the gratitude felt by the TCHP staff and Board of Directors for the outstanding support received as a result of the S.C.C.C. Classic Charity event. Sponsors, donors, golfers and member volunteers, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your gifts of time, talents and financial contributions. Without a doubt, your extraordinary support reflects the character and heart of this community.
