Ontario County Dental Card Programhiding teeth
Discounted Dental Care at Participating Practices
Do you or your family members skip seeing the dentist because it is expensive or not covered by insurance? This program may be for you. Participants pay a small yearly fee-$36.50/individual or $52.00/family-and receive discounted dental visits with participating providers.

A healthy smile is important. Infections in the mouth can cause pre-term labor, infections in other parts of the body and worsening of chronic illnesses. For more information about the OC Dental Card Program or to print an enrollment  form, click here. Brochures are available at Ontario County Public Health, the Office for the Aging, and the Department of Social Services. 

A list of participating dentists and the fee schedule are available at Health Economics Group
