What is DentistLink?
DentistLink is a free referral service for anyone in Washington state, brought to you by Arcora Foundation, the foundation of Delta Dental of Washington. It’s an easy-to-use tool that can connect patients with dental providers to get the dental care they need in their communities. Open to Apple Health (Medicaid), uninsured, and insured.

Additional Washington Programs for Increased Medicaid Reimbursements
Access to Baby & Child Dentistry
ABCD recruits and trains dentists to provide preventive care and treatment to Apple Health (Medicaid) insured children from birth to six. Participating dentists receive enhanced fees through Medicaid for certain preventive and restorative procedures and family oral health education.
