The Health Department provides routine and urgent dental care at 6 clinics throughout Multnomah County. We see both insured and uninsured patients, including Oregon Health Plan (Medicaid) patients of all ages who are on the following insurance plans:

New Patients

We are currently accepting new patients on Capitol Dental at our Billi Odegaard, Southeast and Northeast clinics. We are no longer taking new patients on Delta Dental.


New patients and uninsured: Call 503-988-6942 between 8am-4:45pm Monday-Friday.

Established patients: If you have insurance and have been seen before at a Multnomah County dental clinic, then you should call your clinic directly.

Locations and hours»

If you live outside Multnomah County we are unable to see you in our dental clinics. However, our referral coordinators can provide you with information about low-cost dental services in your area. For more information call 503-988-6942 between 8am-4:45pm, Monday-Friday.


If you’re covered by the Oregon Health Plan, there’s no charge for dental services which are part of your routine benefits. Not all dental services are available at our clinics.

If you’re not insured, expect to pay $25 when you check in for each appointment and pay any remaining balance when you check out. We can also help you apply for insurance»

If you're not eligible for the Oregon Health Plan, you can meet with our eligibility staff to see if you qualify for a discount.


Many clinics have staff members that speak languages other than English. Please let us know if you need an interpreter for your visit.
