The Dental Programs at Arkansas Children’s provides care for patients with limited access to traditional dental care due to age, medical, or economic liabilities. Our program is divided into two distinct programs.

  • The first is a hospital-based program that provides complex dental and craniofacial care for patients with medical, developmental, or structural anomalies within a multidisciplinary team that includes both dental and medical professionals.
  • Our second program is a school-based model that provides care for children through a school clinic, mobile dental clinics, and a traveling sealant program.
