There are community health clinics throughout the state that are federally and state funded. These clinics provide medical services and most provide dental services for adults, although some clinics may restrict services to children only.

The clinics charge discounted copayment rates for dental services. Their eligibility requirements are based on household income and use a sliding fee scale. You do not have to live in the county where the clinic is located. There may be a waiting list for services.

If you are in pain with a toothache or have infection, please mention this when you call the clinic.

Below is an internet link to a search engine on a computer to find the clinic closest to you. Simply insert your zip code, and a list of clinics with distance, address, phone number, and links to driving directions and maps. Our suggestion is to call the clinic phone number before your visit to check if an appointment is available.

Go online at http://findahealthcenter.hrsa.gov/ to find a clinic location.


Federally Qualified Health Centers provide comprehensive health care services, focusing on indigent, uninsured and underserved individuals. Not all sites provide all services (Dental, Mental Health/Substance Abuse, and Primary Care). FQHCs have defined target populations and service areas. Services are provided to Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, Insured and Uninsured individuals. Patients may be eligible for services based on their family income and on a sliding fee schedule.
