The Dental Referral Program


The Dental Referral Program (DRP) is a collaboration between Champaign County Health Care Consumers and area dentists to provide discounted dental care to low-income, uninsured adults in the Champaign-Urbana area.


At the first appointment with the DRP dentist, clients are charged a fixed price of $15 and will get x-rays, an oral assessment, and a treatment plan. After this consultation, subsequent dental services will be discounted on a sliding scale of 20, 40, 60 percent off, and the client must pay for those services at the time of each visit.


CCHCC screens and qualifies the clients and schedules their dental appointments with the participating dentists.


To be eligible for the Dental Referral Program, you must:

  • Have no dental insurance.
  • Have an income at or below 185% of the federal poverty level (an annual income of $21,257 for one person, or $43,568 for a family of four).


Unfortunately, due to high demand, there currently is a waiting list to become a member of the Dental Referral Program. If you would like more information, or would like to put your name on the waiting list, please contact (217) 352-6533 and ask to speak with someone about the Dental Referral Program.
