Free or Low Cost Dental Work

Fresno has a couple dental hygiene and dental assisting programs that provide a service to the public. In order to train their students, these programs need volunteers to work on. This way, if you are willing, you can receive free cleanings, sealants, or x-rays under proper supervision, although some services include low cost fees (the rumor is $21 for x-rays and $15 for a cleaning at Fresno City College).
Fresno City College will forward your x-rays to your personal dentist, so this is one way to lower your costs if you don't have insurance. The Care Credit Program is a way to participate in a payment program of six months to a year without interest, or with interest for 24 months to 60 months. Medi-cal offers dental for children that qualify 17 years old and younger. Healthy Families has limited dental as well.
