Free Dental Care In Alaska

There are several options for those looking for free dental care in Alaska.

Community health centers are local, nonprofit, community-led organizations that target low income and medically underserved populations in rural and urban communities.

CHCs accept Medicaid and Medicare, as well as private insurance, and offer a sliding discount to the un- and under- insured who meet the income eligibility requirements.

In addition, I am including information for children, even though this is a site devoted to seniors, because i think it is the right thing to do.

All of the contact information is up-to-date as of the last time I checked, but periodically this information does change. If it does for any reason please contact me and I will get you updated information.

Where can someone who is disabled, indigent or elderly find assistance?

If you are disabled you should contact Alaska’s Donated Dental Services (DDS) program, which is part of the Dental Lifeline Network (formerly the National Foundation of Dentistry for the Handicapped).

The program assists individuals who have a severe and persistent mental illness or are elderly and lack adequate income to pay for needed care. People with developmental disabilities are given priority status when applications are processed.
