Arlington, Texas Dental Help For Low Income

friendshelpingfriends started this conversation

Dental Health Arlington (DHA) is a nonprofit organization, which opened its doors in 1993 to provide access to care for low-income residents of southeast Tarrant County, Texas.  Our mission is to provide preventive and pain relieving services to low income residents as well as to educate children about good oral hygiene habits.  Each year DHA provides free and low-cost dental care for approximately 2,500 people of all ages in our clinic.  SMILES school-based prevention program helps 8,000 disadvantaged elementary school children in Arlington, Mansfield and Fort Worth who might otherwise have gone without care. 

-Dental Health Arlington’s clinic sees people of all ages who are economically disadvantaged. 

-There is no residency restriction.

-Those who can prove they live in Arlington and are on a government assistance program can receive lower cost services due to a special grant from the City of Arlington.

-All other services cost approximately one-third of regular dental prices.
