How can I become a patient in the Dental Program?
Call the Dental Program for an "Application for Dental Care". You must meet the following criteria: be an Oakland County resident, have no dental insurance or Medicaid, and qualify financially by filling out the application. Your income must be verifiable. The application takes about one week to process.
What are your fees?
Registration Fee (once qualified) is $15 per family. Prosthetics fees (dentures, if needed) varies--patient pays lab fee only. Dental Visit Fee is $15 per appointment.
Do you treat patients with special needs?
The Dental Offices are wheel chair accessible. The Dentists treat patients of all ages. Language translation may be available, but it is best to have someone come with the patient. The Dental Program will see all medically compromised patients, initially. If a referral is necessary we will help.
Do you have any specialists?
No. Oakland County has only general dentists and not specialists such as oral surgeons, endodontists (root canal), periodontists (gum disease), pedodontists (children's specialist) or orthodontists (braces). If a patient needs a specialist we will make the appropriate referral. We refer to the dental schools in Detroit and Ann Arbor; also Detroit Receiving Hospital, Tri-County Dental Health Council and the private sector. Outside referrals are at the patient's own expense.
