The Senior Smile Dental Service is a community service program providing low-income, uninsured senior citizens living in Multnomah County with affordable dental care.
Through SSDS, participating Multnomah Dental Society members agree to offer treatment to qualified patients at a 50% reduction in normal rates, with the exception of lab fees, which are charged in full.
Sponsored by MDS since 1979, this community service program has provided nearly $1,000,000 in routine and specialty treatment to over 4,000 residents.
Their goal is to help those seniors who would otherwise have no means of affording professional dental care.
Once an individual has qualified for the program and been made a member, the patient is assigned to a participating dentist.
Efforts are made to match the patient with a dentist located near their residence.
The patient will receive an eligibility card, along with the name, address and phone number of the dentist they are assigned to.
It is the patient's responsibility to contact the dental office to make an appointment.
The eligibility card must be presented at each office visit.
All follow up visits for treatment and annual check-ups are scheduled through the dental office.
You must meet the following criteria to participate in the SSDS program:
Ask your dentist for an estimate in advance so you are prepared.
The participating dentist, the Senior Smile Dental Service program or the Multnomah Dental Society may immediately terminate the relationship with the patient if any of the above guidelines are not met.
