When outpatient emergency dental care is provided, as a humanitarian service, to individuals
who have no established eligibility for outpatient dental care, the treatment will
be restricted to the alleviation of pain or extreme discomfort, or the remediation
of a dental condition which is determined to be endangering life or health. The provision of emergency treatment to persons found ineligible for dental care
will not entitle the applicant to further dental treatment. Individuals provided emergency dental care who are found to be ineligible for such
care will be billed.
