Frequently Asked Questions
How can I find out if I’m eligible for Medicaid?
What is a sliding-fee scale?
Clinics that charge based on a sliding-fee scale calculate the cost for services based on your ability to pay. Usually, that’s based on your household income. To qualify for a sliding-fee scale, you may need to provide proof of income, such as a paystub, a copy of a disability check or other official document that testifies to your income.
What is a dental home and why is it important?
Taking care of your mouth is just as important as taking care of your body. That’s why it’s important to establish a dental home—a place where you develop an ongoing relationship with a dentist. Your dental home can help you create good oral health habits for you and your family, resolve any dental issues you may have and give you a place to go in case of a dental emergency.
I haven’t been to the dentist in a long time. Where do I start?
First, find a clinic close to where you live and make an appointment. At your appointment, bring up any questions or concerns you may have about your mouth—your dentist will be happy to help educate you, develop a treatment plan and make you more comfortable.
