Welcome to Black Creek Dental Center

The residents of Nuremberg, Weston, and surrounding communities raised approximately $50,000 through the sale of non-interest bearing bonds in the 1960’s to construct a medical facility and attract a physician to this rural area. The building plans were purchased from the Sears Roebuck Foundation which also provided advice during the construction phase. After several unsuccessful experiences with physicians, the community group asked RHC to take over the facility. The Black Creek Medical Center opened in August, 1971. RHC signed a six-year lease which included an option to buy. At the end of the lease, the facility was purchased for $36,872 and each purchaser of the bonds was repaid. Remodeling of the waiting area and some exterior repairs were completed in 1989. In response to community requests for dental services, Black Creek Dental Center was opened in January, 1978, approximately one-quarter mile from the medical center. A new addition to the Black Creek Health Center was constructed in 1991 to house the Dental Center operation.
