County seeks dis­counted den­tists

The Dundalk Eagle - - EDITORIAL -

The Bal­ti­more County De­part­ment of Health and the county Den­tal As­so­ci­a­tion are seek­ing den­tal providers in­ter­ested in of­fer­ing dis­counted den­tal ser vices to a lim­ited num­ber of unin­sured Bal­ti­more County res­i­dents.

The Bal­ti­more County Den­tal Ac­cess Pro­gram connects unin­sured Bal­ti­more County res­i­dents with den­tists who agree to ac­cept a dis­count of their nor­mal and cus­tom­ary fee for a cer­tain num­ber of clients.

The BCDH screens res­i­dents for fi­nan­cial need, and dis­counts are de­ter­mined based on the house­hold in­come.

BCDH re­ceives ap­prox­i­mately 3,000 phone calls per year from res­i­dents who can­not af­ford rou­tine den­tal care and are in pain. Many of these res­i­dents turn to the Den­tal Ac­cess Pro­gram for an af­ford­able means to get re­lief from their dis­com­fort.

If you might be in­ter­ested, or know some­one who might be will­ing to pro­vide care, please call Cindy Kaiser at 410-887-2780.
