Out of Options

I am a 29 year old male, who is in desperate need of dental assistance. I have not been able to visit a dentist in years do to constant financial struggles, and have reached a point where the damage and infection to my teeth and mouth is starting to get very dangerous to my health... not to mention the never-ending nauseating pain. I, like so many other unfortunate people, lost my job a few months back, and am running out of options quickly. I have already checked with my local Health and Welfare Dept, but their assistance is limited, and I am in need of major surgery.. I have also checked to see if there are any local dental schools that I could have look at me, but no such luck in my area. I understand people everywhere are struggling, and I am not looking for a hand-out. But, at the same time, I have past the point where my pride will get in the way, and am open to any suggestions.

Thank you so much for your time, I look forward to hearing from you.

Re: Out of Options

Each dental clinic may operate slightly different than others and offer different forms of assistance, but they are a great place to call for access to free or low cost dental care. Even if the location can’t meet your specific need, they can usually refer you to other non-profits or Idaho or federal government health and dental programs. Hope this helps!
Hope you see it before it gets pulled off of this site.......
