Need to get connected to dental care?
The dental resource sheets below have information on different community resources that offer discounts, sliding scale fees, and/or accept Apple Health (Medicaid/Provider One). You can also check out our Contact page to be directed to a WAHA team member who can talk to you about your options for accessing local dental care.
Access to Baby and Child Dentistry (ABCD)
ABCD is a dental program for children under 6 years old who have Apple Health for Kids (Medicaid/Provider One). ABCD spreads the word on the importance of early dental care to the prevention of decay, and connects kids to dentists who are specially trained to work with young children. Kids enrolled in ABCD receive dental exams, fluoride varnish, family oral health education and other dental care as needed.
If you would like to enroll your child in ABCD or get help finding a dentist for your children, please visit our Contact page to get in touch with us.
Whatcom Project Access Dental (WPAD)
WPAD connects low-income Whatcom County residents to local dentists who donate their services. Patients can receive care for their one most critical restorative dental need, such as a filling. The program is not able to help with preventive care (such as cleanings) or urgent dental care. An application is required, and there may be a program fee of $10-$30 as well as additional fees for some dental services. Please visit our Contact page to get in touch with us and learn more about WPAD.
WPAD is a partnership between the Mount Baker District Dental Society and WAHA. WPAD receives funding from the Washington Dental Service Foundation.
