• Are elderly: age 65 or older, or

Due to lengthy waitlists, applications are NOT being accepted in the following counties: Cascade and Custer.

If you have documentation from a physician stating that you cannot receive essential medical treatment due to your dental condition you can apply for the program even if your county is closed.

Dina’s been through so much. It was great to see the transformation from her coming in, hopeless about her teeth, and walking out with a great smile and a lot of hope for the rest of her life.
