Dental Assistance Program - Effective June 1, 2022: Through a partnership with the Christian Service Center and the Abilene-Taylor County Public Health District, this program assists applicants who are currently experiencing acute dental pain. This service allows for one tooth to be extracted or filled by a participating dentist with the applicant paying a $20 copay to the Christian Service Center. Applicants are only eligible for one tooth extraction or filling every 12 months. The applicant must be a resident of Taylor County, at 250% or less of the Federal Poverty Level, must not be experiencing long-term chronic dental pain, and must not currently have dental insurance. Taylor County processes each application for eligibility and then forwards the application to the Abilene-Taylor County Public Health District and the Christian Service Center for follow-up dental screening and scheduling.
