Member Benefit Spotlight
Martti - Language Interpretation Service
The AAPD has partnered with Martti™ (My Accessible Real-Time Trusted Interpreter) to provide highly effective video language interpre- tation services for Limited English Proficient and Deaf and Hard of Hearing patients, at a reduced rate exclusively for AAPD members.

Martti provides live video medical interpreting to help eliminate healthcare disparities related to language and cultural barriers. Martti provides access to interpreters of nearly 60 languages via live video and to more than 250 languages via live audio Interpreting. Both Martti interpretation offerings connect to its highly qualified, certified medical interpreters. Martti interpreters have a thorough understanding of the US healthcare system and are some of the most culturally competent interpreters in the market.

Due to the release of Section 1557 federal regulations in 2016, health care providers, including dentists, who receive federal financial as- sistance (such as those participating in Medicaid or CHIP) must post notices in the top 15 languages spoken in their state that free language assistance services are available, and ensure their interpreters (including bilingual staff) are "qualified."

Pricing options start as low as $0.85 per minute for audio-only interpretation. To request Martti, visit
