Dentistry From The Heart hosts events where dentists provide no-charge services to those in need. The organization’s website has a calendar of all events. Clicking on the individual event entry gives more details such as location, event coordinator and contact information. Since the events are on a first-come, first-serve basis, the organization recommends arriving early.

The National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics hosts a searchable database of clinics on its website. A visitor can find many health clinics in his area by entering a ZIP code or city and state combination. The search listings includes all services offered at each clinic and a link to each clinic’s website for more details. For example, a search with a 25-mile radius around Los Angeles, California, includes the Venice Family Center, which offers dental services. The programs and services page on the center’s website lists exams, X-rays, cleanings, root canals and fillings.

The Health Resources and Service Administration, a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, operates centers that provide health services, including dental. Patients pay what they can afford based on income. A patient can search for a center near him on the Health and Human Services website.
