Improve Oral Health

The Children’s Dental Clinic provides free dental care to eligible children from Wichita and Sedgwick County Schools. To be eligible, children ages 5 through 15 cannot have private dental insurance, Medicaid, or Kansas HealthWave and must qualify for the free or reduced lunch program at their schools.

The school nurse makes referrals for children to participate in the clinic. Wichita State University dental hygiene students receive clinical experience and instruction as they provide preventive care under the supervision of the staff hygienist. More than 29 volunteer dentists and oral surgeons from the community donate their time and services to address children's restorative and extraction needs.

For more information, call 316-660-7300.

Dental clinics for un- and underinsured residents can be found on page 9 of the Cover the Uninsured handbook.
