An article from Ohio State University, The Atlantic, and the Associated Press states that if you qualify for a dental assistance program, it is best to apply online and wait to see if your application is approved.
This is the time when most people get their dental checkups, as well as when they pay their bills.
While the online application process is usually fast, if you have dental issues that make it difficult to get dental help, the phone number to call for help is usually on a toll free number.
If your dentist or other health care provider is not available to help, there are dental centers in the area who may be able to help.
You can get more information on your state’s dental assistance programs from the Ohio Department of Public Health, the Ohio Association of Community Dental Facilities, the National Association of Dental Offices, or the National Center for Dental Research and Education.
