Bite Into Dental Bills

Whether or not you have insurance, you may be eligible for free or low-cost dental exams and treatment

Some news to make you smile: Whether you have dental insurance or are among the 100 million Americans without it, you may be eligible for free or low-cost dental exams and treatment.

Nearly all dental schools provide services by dentist-supervised students for a fraction of typical costs. Find one at www.ada.org by clicking on “Dental Schools.” For federally funded programs, visit www.nidcr.nih.gov and click “Finding Dental Care.” And if you’re disabled, contact the National Foundation of Dentistry for the Handicapped at www.nfdh.org or 303-534-5360.
