This paper describes a state-funded program providing dental services for community-based mentally ill clients. Contrasts between outpatient services for persons with mental illness and similar programs serving the mentally retarded population are emphasized. Implications of client eligibility, communication, and compliance issues relative to limitations of care are discussed. Suggestions for improving similar programs are provided.
