Greater Minnesota Clinics

This is a list of dental clinics outside of the Metro area that provide dental services to patients who are on public care programs, or that offer dental services at a reduced cost. Find a clinic in your area, and then call to make an appointment. Please note that services, hours and costs at these clinics vary, so you may find it helpful to click on the clinic website for more information.

Please note that this is not a comprehensive list of all Greater Minnesota dental clinics that provide such services, nor are these clinics expressly endorsed by the MDA. In addition, many private practice dentists who are not listed here provide care to those who are enrolled in Minnesota Health Care Programs (Medical Assistance, Minnesota Care, and General Assistance Medical Care).

Also, there are special resources where limited amounts of reduced cost or free dental services are offered under certain circumstances.
