Stefano Dental is partnering with the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Erie Co. For our third year, from March through June, professionally whiten your teeth, and seriously ill and underprivileged children in your community (and around the world) get 100% of the money. Our custom bleaching system is regularly $450. Everything is being donated and the discounted fee to you is reduced to $200 for your donation today! If you choose not to bleach we've set a goal to raise at least $1,000 this year in additional donations, apart from the donations received through teeth whitening. Please consider donating at least $10 next time you visit our practice. 100% goes to helping kids! For more information stop in or call us today, and also you may visit and our Facebook page.    We are happy to announce that we have raised $7,675, which half of proceeds will stay locally for Big Brothers and Big Sisters and the other half will go to Smiles for Life foundation. Thank you to all you donated.

What is Dental Options?

What is Dental Options?

OPTIONS is a program offered by the Ohio Dental Association in collaboration with the Ohio Department of Health.  OPTIONS links Ohio’s uninsured working poor, low income seniors and persons who are medically, mentally, physically challenged with volunteer dentists or dental clinics to provide donated or discounted care depending on their financial status.

How does a person qualify to receive dental care through OPTIONS?

To qualify for OPTIONS, patients must meet income guidelines and not have any form of dental insurance or Medicaid.  Potential patients can call the toll-free telephone number, 1-888-765-6789, which will connect them to a regional office to receive an application or talk to a referral coordinator.  After eligibility has been determined, the patient is matched with a nearby participating dentist.
