CLINICS & DENTAL SERVICES

FOR MAINE RESIDENTS




Introduction
Oral health is a vital component of overall health throughout the life cycle. Dental disease affects people of all ages; yet to a great extent, it is highly preventable. Early diagnosis of oral health problems through regular dental visits and the use of preventive measures such as fluoride and dental sealants, along with practicing good oral hygiene, good nutrition, and the prevention of oral injuries, are important for people of all age groups. Adopting, practicing, and maintaining healthy behaviors will help everyone to “Keep Your Teeth for a Lifetime.” Unfortunately, and for a variety of reasons, not everyone is able to obtain dental care on a regular basis. However, preventive measures and some services are available to all individuals.
MaineCare: MaineCare, administered through the Department of Health & Human Services, provides dental benefits to individuals whose incomes meet federal poverty guidelines. Eligible children and young adults under age 21 are able to get the preventive and regular care they need to facilitate normal growth and development. Eligibility is based on family income. For members age 21 and over, MaineCare covers a limited number of dental procedures to relieve pain, eliminate infection, and/or prevent imminent tooth loss. See page 20 for more information on MaineCare programs.
About This Directory
This directory is a resource for consumers and for health and social services providers likely to be assisting clients, who do not have a regular dentist, in obtaining the dental care they need. These may include people with low incomes, those who do not have insurance coverage or who are eligible for MaineCare, and individuals with special needs. There are a number of clinics and other agencies throughout the state of Maine that either directly provide dental care services, or can assist these individuals in obtaining access to care. This directory describes those clinics and agencies, the services they provide, eligibility guidelines, and where to get more information. State-funded assistance programs, tribal health programs, rural community health centers, and other potential sources of care are included. This document is updated about every year, and the information included may not remain accurate, but we hope it can provide a start in finding appropriate resources.
The information in this directory was updated during the winter of 2014 and, to the best of our knowledge, is accurate as of the date of publication. PLEASE NOTE that inclusion in this directory does not guarantee that services will be provided.
We would appreciate learning about other programs and services that provide or assist Maine people in obtaining dental care. If you have suggestions for additions to this directory, please forward them to the Oral Health Program (see inside cover). New information will be added to this directory as it becomes available. In addition, from time to time, updates to this directory may be available electronically. Please check the Maine CDC Website http://www.maine.gov/dhhs/mecdc/population-health/odh/index.shtml for the most up-to-date version of this publication.

State-wide Resources

By state-wide resources, we mean those that may not impose geographic or residence restrictions as a condition for receiving services. To our knowledge, the clinics, health centers and agencies listed below may see any Maine resident, regardless of where he or she lives. However, they may not offer out-of-area patients a sliding fee scale, or may otherwise limit services; for example, they may accept MaineCare, but otherwise have restrictions, or see only children. Be sure to ask about any restrictions with a potential service provider at the time an appointment is being made.

Using This Directory

The Directory is divided into three major sections: (I) Clinics and Health Centers (sources of direct clinical services), listed alphabetically by county; (II) State Funded Assistance Programs (available to eligible persons statewide); and (III) Other Resources (programs and agencies that may be helpful in obtaining care or that have several locations throughout Maine, as well as other suggestions). This section also includes a list of preventive dental hygiene providers.


Check the resources for your geographic area first. Then review Sections II and III for additional ideas. We have tried to indicate any restrictions such as residence, age or income as clearly as possible, sometimes with the use of bold type and headings. In Section III under "State wide Resources," we have listed those clinics and health centers that did not impose residence requirements at the time of publication.
Call the clinics, health centers, and other health or social service agencies in your area even if it appears from the description that they cannot provide dental care or help obtain services. Staff may know of new resources and be able to help you, even if they deal primarily with a different population group or area of service.

Applications may be obtained by calling the office at 594-6992, or on our website at www.knoxclinic.org.

MaineCare insured children pay $5.00 per visit. Patients must cancel their appointment at least 24 hours in advance or you will still be charged.
