If the provided information on your application does not fit the eligibility criteria of our program we will send you a letter informing you of this. Ineligible applicants cannot reapply.
If there is an available dentist in your area you will receive a form to confirm that you are able to travel the distance to the dentist's office.
If there is no dentist available in your area you will receive a letter to inform you that we cannot provide you services at this time.
No Available Dentist
Once we receive the completed form we will send you the volunteer dentist's information within 2 weeks. You must call the office within 30 days to schedule a consultation.
At your consultation appointment your dentist will confirm that your dental needs fit the program's criteria and that they are able to donate the services that you need. Treatment is not guaranteed.
If the dentist determines your dental needs are in the scope of the program, you will review treatment options. The dentist is donating the treatment and has the final say on the plan.
If the dentist determines that your dental needs are beyond the scope of the program your application will be considered ineligible. Ineligible applicants cannot reapply.
