State Dental Assistance Programs
Stand alone State dental assistance programs are atypical. State dental assistance
normally is provided as a component service of Medicaid and related medical assistance programs administered by each State. Income and eligibility requirements apply to these State assistance programs. State dental assistance
normally focuses on the under 21 population, so dental assistance for adults is usually very limited. For information about dental assistance available through State Medicaid programs, as well as the eligibility requirements to participate in these programs, please follow the relevant State link below.
Individuals who do not qualify for Medicaid benefits may still find dental assistance
available through State Dental Health Programs and Community Dental Programs.
Although these sources frequently work in conjunction with State Medicaid programs, in some States they facilitate dental assistance to low-income individuals and families
who do not qualify for Medicaid. For information about dental assistance through these sources, please follow the links above to the relevant State or community resource.
Individuals interested in dental assistance may also want to consider services offered by
Dental Clinics at U.S. Dental Schools.
These facilities do not provide dental assistance programs per se, but they do provide reduced rate dental services to individuals who meet certain criteria.
