Free dental referral program helps connect people with area dentists regardless of insurance status
Arcora Foundation – the foundation of Delta Dental of Washington – offers a free dental referral service, DentistLink, to connect people with Apple Health (Medicaid) and those who do not have insurance or are underinsured, with a nearby dentist.
Here is how the DentistLink referral system works:
- People needing assistance can call or text DentistLink at 844.888.5465 – if not immediately available, a referral specialist will return your call as soon as possible
- The referral specialist will ask a few questions related to the person’s age, location, and the nature of the dental problem
- If the problem requires immediate attention, DentistLink will connect the user to a provider who is open to treat urgent problems
For those requiring additional assistance, such as transportation or childcare, the referral specialist can also assist by connecting people with resources.
This service is provided at no cost to patients, dental care providers, and community partners.
