ChildSmiles Dental is structured in such a way that we are able to provide school-based preventive dental care to most children at no cost to parents. Our services are covered at 100% by most dental insurance companies. In the event a child does not have dental insurance and their parents request financial assistance, we connect them to a community service organization that will assist the family in applying for pediatric dental insurance. If that child is denied dental coverage, they will automatically qualify to have all of their preventive school-based dental care sponsored by The ChildSmiles Foundation. This process allows us to provide services to Marion County's school-age children at no cost to parents.
*Financial assistance is available to children who cannot obtain dental insurance and their parents cannot afford to pay for dental services. Applications will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis and funds will be allocated until they are exhausted.
