Discount Dental Plans In Mississippi For Bad Credit/Low Income

by


Beautiful teeth are important and keeping your teeth and mouth healthy is also important to your overall health. Lack of access to dental care for all ages remains a public health challenge and many Americans living in Mississippi are finding it difficult to pay a dentist for their dental needs. This may be because they are unable to afford dental treatment or unable to get approved for financing because of bad credit.

Discount Dental Care, Mississippi


Here we have listed the options for discounted dental plans that are available to residents of Mississippi:

Dental Benefits For Veterans - Dental benefits are provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs according to law. In some instances, Veterans Affairs is authorized to provide extensive dental care, while in other cases treatment may be limited. Eligibility and benefits for Veteran dental care are limited by law and categorized into VA dental classifications or classes. To learn if you are eligible for VA Dental Care, see va.gov/healthbenefits.

Mississippi Donated Dental Services - Through volunteer dental providers, the Mississippi Dental Association's Donated Dental Services (DDS) Program provides comprehensive dental care at no cost for the disabled, elderly, and ill adults. To apply for free dental services, download an application at nfdh.org or contact the Mississippi Program Coordinator by calling 601-368-9823.


Mississippi Health Centers - Residents of Mississippi may also want to contact their local Health Center as many may provide discounted dental services to those unable to afford treatment. The Bureau of Primary Health Care, a service of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), supports federally-funded community health centers across the country that provide free or reduced-cost health services (based on income, fees are charged on a sliding fee scale of up to 100% discount), including dental care.

Mississippi Division of Medicaid - Mississippi Health Benefits includes four Medicaid programs and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) that can help pay for dental extractions and related treatments (See medicaid.ms.gov/WhatMedicaidCanDoForYou.aspx for a list of covered benefits). Individuals who may qualify are low-income adults with children under age 18, children up to age 19, and pregnant women. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) that takes effect January 1, 2014, creates insurance affordability programs as a way to get health coverage at a lower cost than purchasing coverage on your own. In Mississippi, these programs include Mississippi Health Benefits (Medicaid and CHIP) and health coverage through a federal marketplace. To learn about eligibility guidelines and to apply for health benefits before and after January 1, 2014 under this program, see medicaid.ms.gov/ApplyForMedicaid.aspx or call the Division of Medicaid at 1-800-421-2408.

Dental Schools - Dental schools are a excellent source of reduced-cost, quality dental treatment. Most of these teaching facilities have clinics that allow dental students to gain experience treating patients while providing care at a lowered cost. Licensed, experienced dentists closely supervise the students. Faculty and post-graduate clinics are also available at most dental schools.

Locations and Contact Information of Dental Schools in Mississippi:

UMC School of Dentistry - Patients that are treated by the school pay fees for dental care at a reduced rate because of the additional time required to deliver the care. Services include general to advanced dentistry and orthodontics.
