Not everyone has dental benefits (commonly called “dental insurance”) through an employer, and those who are unemployed face even greater problems getting necessary dental care. Sometimes there are language barriers, transportation difficulties, or simply not any dentists close by. The Minnesota Dental Association is committed to lending a helping hand to those in need. The information below can help you find free or sliding fee scale clinics, as well as special state and national programs for children and for elderly, disabled or medically compromised individuals.
