Find affordable, quality dental care in your community.

Dental care is an important part of overall health, but it can be prohibitively expensive for low-income people. Fortunately, a few options for receiving basic and major dental care at a reduced cost are available in many parts of the United States.

  1. Dental Schools

    • Dozens of dentistry schools in the U.S. provide low-cost dental care to the public. Licensed, professional dentists carefully monitor the work of trained students to ensure quality care.

    Community Centers

    • The federal government, through the Department of Health and Human Services, provides funding for hundreds of community medical centers, where the cost of care is determined by your income level. These clinics often provide affordable dental care in addition to other medical care.

    2-1-1

    • The United Way collaborates with thousands of charitable groups to provide a hotline, reached by dialing 2-1-1, which is available throughout most of the United States. The staff can help you locate affordable dental care along with other social services. In addition to dental schools and federally funded clinics, you may be connected with other charities and outreach programs in your community that provide low-cost dental care or assistance with dental bills.
