Dental care assistance is now available for all Caddo Parish residents. Caddo is one of 41 counties and parishes around the country selected by the National Association of Counties to kick off a new program.
Caddo Commissioner Stephanie Lynch says any parish resident can get one of the cards — regardless of income. Prices range from $6.95 a month for an individual to $69 a year for a family. Lynch says the program is not dental insurance — but it does provide discounts of five-to-fifty-percent on dental procedures like oral exams, cleaning, dentures, crowns, and more. About thirty dentists in this area are participating. Information is available on the Caddo Parish website — www.caddo.org
