care free dental

We provide both routine hygiene care (cleanings and x-rays), fillings, and extractions for the underserved or uninsured in our community at reduced fees. 

With more than 40,000 people in greater Lansing who cannot afford regular oral health care, dental issues become extreme and often require a patient to visit local emergency rooms…where medical staff can only prescribe pain medicine and antibiotics, not treat the root of the problem. 

Our office will be closed on
Monday, December 24th – Friday, December 28th 
Monday, December 31st – Tuesday, January 1st 

We have special holiday hours on
Wednesday, January 2nd 9:00a – 4:00p
Thursday January 3rd 9:00a – 4:00p
Friday January 4th 9:00a – 12:00p

Care Free Dental attempts to prevent these expensive ER visits by offering low-cost preventive hygiene care and monthly extraction clinics through a compassionate group of volunteer dentists along with one part-time paid dentist. While we can schedule hygiene visits in just a few weeks, more extensive dental care (such as fillings and extractions) can take longer.

Payment & Insurances

Our clinic is funded through private donations, grants, and modest fee-for-service revenue. Ingham Health Plan and all Medicaid plans are accepted. We also accept individuals without any insurance. Please discuss service fees in advance with our staff when you schedule an appointment. Because our mission is to serve those without access to quality care, people with commercial insurances are not seen at our office.
