Coös Family Dental, on Berlin's Main Street, is open to anyone in the community who needs
care. The clinic is ﬁlling a need that is particularly acute in the North Country, where more than two in ten adults have not seen a dentist in the past ﬁve years, and very few dental practices are accepting new Medicaid patients.
