Free Dental Care in New Jersey

My first step in seeking out free dental care in New Jersey was to contact the NJ Dental Association.

I emailed them but didn’t get a reply to my inquiry. So the next step was to check out their website.

When I went there ( the first thing I saw was the “Public Resources” section.

And the thing that caught my eye was the NJDA Senior-Dent Program.

The problem is that the link refercing the program and the particulars went to a dead page. So unfortunately I don’t know if this program is viable or not.

So the best thing for you to do is to call the NJ Dental Association at (732) 821-9400.

Homebound Program

This is for both seniors and caregivers who cannot get to the dental office. I am listing the program because it is unique.

However, it should be noted that this is not a free service. Normal office fees apply and in some cases a house call fee may apply as well.

Just call (800) 831-NJDA and the NJDA will connect you with a dentist in the area who does house calls.

Other Available Help

First, I found a really well written article on listing the exact type of help needed. Now, only three clinics are listed that are available for seniors, but its a start.

You can access the list here…

The other was a directory that I saw put together by the state government.

You can access that list here…

In looking through it, there are plenty of clinics that take Medicaid and are listed as “charity care” which I am guessing is for low-income individuals.

So there are resources for seniors looking for free dental care.

    I was very surprised that there was only 1 place in Warren County for free dental care for seniors with no insurance. I don’t have transportation to either locations that were listed. I did see where there was 1 in Hackettstown and 1 in Flemington, which are not close to where I live in Phillipsburg, NJ. I already have my teeth pulled and I am ready for the dentures. I do not have dental insurance with my husbands insurance from work. I can’t afford to go to a dentist any more because we are in a bankruptcy right now, and I do not have any other source of income. I am not old enough yet for Social Security, but I will be after July. Not having teeth has become difficult for me to eat. Everything has to be soft, or I can’t eat it. Thank you.
