Dental Program Overview
HAAM members receive dental care through the Capital Area Dental Foundation (CADF). Each member is assigned to a CADF dentist, where they receive care at reduced rates.
Each member receives up to $600 in funding each grant year. This funding can be used for one cleaning per year and routine visits. Please note that this funding does not cover cosmetic work. Members are responsible for a $10 co-pay at each visit.
Funding renews every July 1 (not on the calendar year!). Funds are first come first serve while grant dollars last and any remaining funds not used by the member expire on June 30.
There are two steps to making an appointment, which need to be followed every time to ensure funding is approved. Don't get stuck with a bill! They are:
- Contact the Capital Area Dental Foundation (CADF) to have the appointment approved. Please allow up to 3 business days for your request to be approved.
- Make the appointment with the dentist after your appointment has been approved. CADF will provide you with the phone number of your dentist or assign you to one.
