What Programs Can Help You With Dental Bills?

State programs, local dentist societies and dental school clinics are good resources for assistance with dental care costs, according to MouthHealthy. Oral Health America's Tooth Wisdom program offers resources for the elderly, and the Children's Health Insurance Program provides dental coverage for children.

The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Association of State and Territorial Dental Directors also offer assistance with dental bills, according to MouthHealthy. Health care credit cards and other financing options help patients make payments to pay for dental work, often with low or no interest.
