Unhappy Hurting in Iowa

My Fiance is 30 and his teeth are in horrible shape.....he has no insurance and is trying to run a small business. Things have been this way for him so long that he has been eating with his front teeth for years as the ones in back are rotten. Now his front teeth are getting just as bad. He has a moderate stomach problem also and when he gets an infection in his teeth he wont go to a doctor.....so then he doesn't eat for a day or two and his stomach literally lays him out after swallowing the infection from his teeth. He's 6'1 and barely weighs 150. He has kept that weight for years but loses it and then gets it back and then loses it again. He's a great guy and I've been friends with him for almost 9 years. After losing him then getting him back it feels like I cant help. For me and my children there are programs.......but for him I haven't been able to find any affordable ways to help. Any ideas.......anybody pls!!!

Re: Hurting in Iowa

have you checked to see if there is a medical college or university near you. they sometimes will have the students work on low income people for a fraction of the cost. even if you have to drive a couple of hours it would be worth the while...good luck.

Yes, one of my friends goes to dental student.

And your fiance better get to a dentist soon.... the longer he waits, the more work will be needed.
