When I went searching through official channels for information on free dental care in Arizona, I have to say that I was disappointed.
There was very little official information from the state government.
In addition, I emailed the Arizona State Dental Association and after 2 weeks still had not received a response.
So I had to go searching on my own for the information. Fortunately, there were two very good sources of information.
Free Dental Care in Arizona
The first of them was the aforementioned Arizona State Dental Association’s website, although I consider myself to be “tech-savvy” so it took me a while to find it, which means if it took me time I can only imagine how long it would have taken a senior citizen who isn’t tech-savvy to find it.
They did have this list of free or reduced cost dental clinics. Some of them are just for kids, others are just for seniors and some, though not all, deal with dentures.
The other list was provided by NeedyMeds, which specializes in helping people of all ages with their finding the health resources they need, regardless of their ability to pay. The thing to remember about the NeedyMeds list is that it is an all encompassing list for all medical services, not just dental.
So while it is extensive, most of the 209 clinics listed do not deal with things like mammograms and child issues, not dental care.
