To receive care at Tufts Dental Facilities (TDF), each patient must first meet certain qualifications. Caregivers should contact their nearest facility below. (View map.) After calling, our staff will help determine eligibility and verify insurance. Caregivers can also receive information on eligibility from the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services.
Please see our frequently asked questions prior to calling.
If a current TDF patient requires urgent dental care when the TDF clinics are closed (e.g., nights, weekends, and holidays), emergency services are available at Tufts Medical Center (TMC) in Boston. To contact TMC, please call (617) 636-5114 and ask for “Emergency Dental Care.” Alternatively, caregivers and patients can instead contact their closest emergency room for services.
Please note: The Glavin clinic has closed, please contact the Worcester clinic. Children with special needs can also be seen at Tufts Pediatric Dental Clinic in Boston.
