Safety net dental clinics

What is a dental care safety net?
A quick answer is that dental care safety net clinics serve children, adults and elders...

bullet When they don't have a regular dentist
bullet When the clinic is close to home
bullet When they have been told that their Medicaid card will be accepted for payment
bullet When they are in pain from oral disease but need a reduced fee based on their income
bullet When the clinic is linked to their medical health care providers

The Institute of Medicine's report, America's Health Care Safety Net (2000), defines safety net providers as those who "organize and deliver a significant level of health care and other health-related services to uninsured, Medicaid, and other vulnerable patients." Safety net clinics may be operated by federally qualified health centers, local health departments, neighborhood health centers that are private not-for-profit agencies, rural health centers, Indian Health Service or tribal units, institutions, schools, hospitals, or other entities.
