on internet type in free dental,then your city,county,state.You will then see a list of clinics in your area that have some free and low cost dental. Not all procedures in those clinics are free or low cost;some are.Someone there in the clinic will let you what is free or low cost and what is regular price.

I'm 77, retired, enough to live on modestly. Need a lot of bridgework/ implants, probably eight or ten thousand dollars at an average dentest these days. Is there a school in South Florida whose supervised students do this type of work for low or no cost?

 in response to genesto...   Hello. Are you on Medicaid or any government type assistance? Since you have income, you might be able to qualify for a payment plan of some type with a nearby dentist or clinic. Try to get a free evaluation from any local dentist. This will help establish a baseline and let you know what is needed. Once you know what is needed, shop around:). Many people don't think about it, but you can shop dentist just like you would a pair of shoes:). Take care and God Bless!

I am retired, receiving $1,000/mo pension and have no insurance. I have rotten and missing teeth. It's getting harder and harder for me to eat. My smile is not merely ugly; It's downright gross! I'm tired of watching peoples' smiles fade when I smile, ya know?....And I'm kinda lonely....

How can I get me a set of dentures?
I live in Fort Worth, TX.

I need help finding a program for my mother in law. She is 74 and on Medicare. She needs dentures. She does not have any teeth and has worked hard supporting 4 children by herself. Why is there not more programs out there?

Hi goinincircles,

Very well states ... unfortunately, there are many in similar situations.  I will see what I can do for you.  I heard of a traveling dentist but I need to do more research.

Take care and God Bless!

Hi goinincircles

Your story is the story of so many of us who are caught in the trap of being disabled through no fault of our own . To make it worse , we get kicked while we are down by the lack of help medically and finacially for the disabled in our country. I am so sorry that you are stuck like so many of us are. I am just getting back to Aidpages after a long ongoing illness . I hope to update all the pages , probably starting with the dental pages. If I find something in your area , I will let you know as soon as I can. 

Please know that I care. You will be in my prayers.

I live in South Central Kansas. In my town they have a clinic for low income people to get dental care, but they're not taking new patients. If you are in pain, you can go in as a walk-in, but they only give you a 15 min window to get signed in.  I've been there, way ahead of time, 9 times in the past 3 weeks and still haven't seen a dentist.  The people for walk-in have to wait until people with appointments get checked in, and by them the 15 min window has closed and they turn you away.  I have heart diease and diabetis, which my bad teeth aren't helping. I use numbing OTC pain medication everyday several times a day and have for several months. I'm 61 and get SSDI and SSI and have Medicare and Medicaid, but neither pays for dental care for people my age and with only $694.00 a month income, by the time I pay my rent and heating bill, and my co-pay on my medications (which I take a lot of) and my co-pay on my Dr. visits and get my non-food items I need, I just don't have enough to go to a regular dentist.  My income isn't enough for me to afford payments, and Kansas has NO Schools for Dentist. The closest one is in Mo and that's over 250 miles from where I live. I have NO credit cards, cause I couldn't make the payments if they approved me, which they won't cause my income is too low. I took good care of my teeth all my life. I ate healthy, brushed and flossed and saw a dentist twice a yr while I was working.  I became disabled in 1997 and my income dropped dramatically, and as time passed the more medications I was put on, my teeth started going bad.  I have one missing tooth, loose teeth, painful teeth, rotten teeth.  I've never used illegal drugs, just medications prescribed to keep me alive. Medicaid and Medicare paid to remove cataracts from my eyes, and for glasses, but I don't understand why they won't pay for my teeth to be pulled when the infections are causing more damage to my heart, than any other health proble could.  If anyone knows of any help for people like me in my area, please let me know, as I've tried the links and find help in a bunch of states, but not in Kansas.  I'd moved to get help, but I can't afford that either.  If I could afford to move, I could afford a dentist.
