Dental Resources

Below is a list of dental clinics in Minnesota that provide services to patients who are on Minnesota Health Care programs, or that offer services at a reduced cost. Services, hours, and costs vary among those listed, and this is not a complete list of dental clinics that offer reduced fees. Dental clinics not listed here may also serve patients enrolled in Medical Assistance, TEFRA, or Minnesota Care. If the dental clinic you wish to go to is not listed below, you can call and ask the clinic if they provide reduced or sliding fee scales for their services.

Please be sure to call any clinic in advance to verify costs and insurance – if you are insured, set up appointments, and check if the dental clinic is able to handle the specific needs of your child if he or she has a disability or special health care need.

In addition to the list of dental clinics below, dental schools offer services at a reduced cost. The University of Minnesota School of Dentistry, as well as those listed in this link, are dental schools within Minnesota that offer low-cost services.
