When I contacted the Iowa state dental association to help with the information in this post, I didn’t get much of a reply.
All I received was one number in reply, to Donated Dental Services at 1-515-251-8000.
So I knew I had to dig deeper.
Now, in addition to the national sources that I have previously outlined in my “Free Dental Care” page, there are two posts that I found that would be of interest to you.
Free Dental Care In Iowa
First, I found a listing of about 10 free clinics at FreeDental.org (http://www.freedental.org/state/iowa).
The other was a listing of dentists that accept Medicaid in Iowa (http://medicaiddentistry.com/iowa.html).
Now, for the three listings (call the number above as well), the way that I would go about things is as follows…
1) Find the clinic/dentist that is closest to you
2) Reach out to them and see what they can offer you
Now every clinic will accept you on a free basis. Some will only take children, some will only take the disabled. Some will have reduced fees. Others will accept seniors for free.
The point I am making is that there is help out there if you go out and look for it.
