There are clinics that offer free or very low-cost dental care. Contact your local or state health department to get a list. The United Way may also be able to suggest clinics that offer dental services for free. Dental schools and dental hygiene schools, where experienced professionals closely supervise the students, can be excellent sources of high-quality, low-cost dental treatment.
The Bureau of Primary Health Care, Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP (Children's Health Insurance Programs) are government programs that may offer free dental care in your area. Call the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for information about other programs that offer free or low-cost dental care.
