Washington DC free dental clinics

Washington DC has several dental and health care clinics that the low income, uninsured, and patients with medical conditions can turn to for help. Most locations offer some type of assistance, usually on a sliding fee scale, so in effect there is free or low cost dental care provided. If for some reason one of the clinics can’t support you in your needs, then professionals at the facilities can often refer patients to specialists, hospitals, and/or other non-profit or low cost dental clinics. Tens of thousands of people are uninsured in the Washington DC area, and these centers are a great resource for people to contact for help and to get their needs met.
