Here is an excerpt from my grants blog:
Free Grants For Dental Care!
Many people are unaware of the services in their own home town. The ones that do know about it think it's only for helping handicapped citizens. Wrong. This program is in a position to help with free surgery, dental work and much, much more.!–>!–>!–>
If you are employed, but a health problem may prevent you from continuing to work, your local office can help. Especially convenient for those who need a major operation, but have no insurance, This organization will pay for the doctors' visits, medication, actual surgery, recuperative equipment and physical therapy, as well as major dental work, too.
Please look in your area to see if you are eligible to apply for this program!
So you see there are programs that exist that you may be eligible for BUT you are going to have to do the work and find the information so that you will be able to see if you are eligible to apply. Either find the information yourself or find someone who will help you find the information on your terms. It is just as simple as that.!–>!–>!–>
I am uninsured and in need of perio work. Lost 60% bone in my lower jaw. I am only 41. My dentist will work with me on making payments, but the perio work, well, they want payment in full at time of service. I have an estimate of about $10k.
Unemployed single mom. who makes too much on unemployment to qualify for state assistance. AND, they did not know of any programs to help me and would not even try to help me.
Called local Dentistry school. They want payment in full at time of service also. AND their evaluation checkup costs more then what my dentists charges, almost twice as much.
Carecredit has an APR of around 29%.
so, what is a person to do who is at risk of losing their teeth. The drs know the situation is not good. Health and financial. Where does someone like me (and all others in the same situation) go to get help??
Hello and welcome to Aidpage.
What city and state are you in?
Please check these two sites out for free or low cost dental work.
I hope you find help with those two sites.
Good luck getting your teeth fixed

Wishing you the best and I will try to locate another dental clinic free on if I can find it.

Best to you
i have called every dentist, social service agency, dental school, entered contests, even written to celebrities. All to no avail. There is no help for those of us with no money. ANYWHERE! If you don't have the almighty dollar, you die. simple as that.
Others here have mentioned finding dental schools where you can get your dental work for free or at a much lower cost because the dental students need to work on people to help them develop their skills.
and lastly you can check with the dentists themselves because they would also be the best to know if there are any grant programs around relating to this.
It may take some work on your part but I can definitely tell you that there are financial programs out there for these kinds of things - but it will require work on your part to find them.
I have a few thoughts ... there are dental clinics available in your area. If those are full, consider searching further away providing you have transportation. You are correct, the clinics will fill-up but stay persistent ... persistence is the key. I have worked with many clinics over the years and know most have the resources to treat a variety of issues. Take care and God Bless!
Hello. I am a 34 year old mother. My oldest is 17, and my youngest is 8. We live in VA- in Hampton Roads. I was wise enough to jump on any program that I could find to ensure that my kidshow week our teeth were have beautiful, confidant smiles. My parents weren't as concerned, as my 4 sistres and I LOOKED like we had beautiful teeth growing up. We were all married and having babies young, and w/ our pregnancies we learned just how weak our teeth actually were. Over the years none of us have ever had dental insurance and all of our problems have just compiled differently for each of us. There is a dental clinic through the red cross you can get into sometimes, but they only fill or pull, if you can get in. I've been over and over and over- but I can't seem to get everything caught up at one time. I only have 20 teeth left, and two partial root canals in the front. Is there any one that will see you and knock you out and fix you once and for all for low income families? I just want to stop hurting and smile with confidance agian...
