Eligibility:
Services are provided at a discounted price to qualifying homeless patients who present with an approved Union Mission homeless and income verification form. Form must be signed by an approved entity and dated for the date of service.   All dental work provided to the homeless is performed by volunteer dentists which allows for limited availability of appointments.

Uninsured persons with limited income may qualify for discounted services based on a "sliding scale fee schedule. "  To determine eligibility, you will need picture ID and proof of income.

Eligibility is based on household income and patients must bring ONE of the following to the dental center to determine if they are eligible:
  • Current year's tax form (1040 form)
  • 2 current pay stubs
  • 1 unemployment stub
  • Letter from employer on letterhead that states your salary or wage
  • Fixed Income Statement (example: pension, social security or bank statement showing deposits)
  • Signed and notarized personal letter verifying financial status, housing situation, and how you cover expenses
  • Letter on Agency letterhead verifying financial status (example: Housing Authority)
  • Student Grant Information
  • Office of Public Assistance benefit printout (food stamp benefit history)
  • If you are self employed, tax forms from current year and a profit and loss statement

In order to access the Sliding Fee Scale Discount, you must provide one of the above listed items as proof of your financial status. If none of the above are available unfortunately you will be unable to receive the Sliding Fee Scale Discount and will have to pay full price for any dental services rendered. No fees can be provided until appropriate documents are received. All payment is due at the time services are rendered. Acceptable forms of payment: Cash, All Credit Cards except American Express, Debit Cards, and Money Order. No Personal Checks.
