Low-Cost Dental Resources
Dental Care Program
Many Pennsylvania Dental Association (PDA) member dentists offer dental care at a reduced cost to senior citizens on low or fixed incomes through the Senior Dental Care Program. More than 1,000 dentists have participated in this voluntary program, which enables many seniors to obtain affordable dental care and helps them enjoy good health and well-being.
Participating referral dentists offer a minimum discount of 15 percent off their usual fees for patients who meet the program’s basic requirements. In order to be eligible, a patient must fulfill all of the following requirements:
- Be a Pennsylvania resident.
- Be age 65 or older.
- Not be receiving federal, state or other dental health assistance.
- Not have private dental insurance.
- Have a total annual household income of less than $14,500 for a single person or less than $17,700 for a married couple.
PDA’s online Dental Clinic Directory lists free or reduced-cost dental clinics by county and includes information such as clinic location, hours/days of operation, services provided, patient eligibility, fees, area(s) served and contact information. If no clinics are listed in the county you select, then PDA is unaware of any free or reduced-fee dental clinics in that county and recommends checking your neighboring counties for nearby dental care.
