ABSTRACT: Federally qualified health centers, FQHCs, face a number of challenges providing low-cost health services and meeting their primary mission of being available to all users regardless of their ability to pay. In effect, health centers must provide services that border on free to minimal revenue-generating potential. This is especially challenging for health centers providing dental services that are often more costly on a case-by-case visit encounter than primary care services..
