The Delta Dental Foundation has created a new resource to locate open dental clinics which are treating dental emergencies, accept Medicaid, and offer a sliding fee scale based on income. A dental emergency is a service needed to relieve tooth or mouth pain, treat an acute infection, prevent loss of teeth, treat injuries, or control bleeding. Calling an existing dental home would be the first step in treating a dental emergency. If a dental home is not feasible, this list can assist with finding a dental clinic and staying out of the hospital emergency department. Visitdeltadentalmi.com/EmergencyDental for more information.
