Dental care can be free or low-cost if you have dental insurance. To find a dentist, contact your insurer.

If you do not have dental health insurance, the City will provide referrals to low-cost dental providers.

You can also sign up for medical and dental insurance coverage, including Medicaid and Child Health Plus. Learn more on the GetCoveredNYC Health Insurance Application Assistance page.
