A site to check to see if there's any free dental help close enough:

Also, I'd expect dental schools to allow people to volunteer for free dental care from their students.  This should help check if there are any close enough:

Have you noticed that the number of people on Aidpage asking for money greatly outnumber those who have enough to offer any?  For example, I've been disabled with no job for years.

Hi Tess !

I hope you find something that you can use. You shouldn't have to suffer with the current state of your oral challenges.

I'm so excited to find the dentists listed above!  I hope that one of them will be able to help me.  I'm 28 years old and have struggled my entire life with bad parents were not big on parenting and my teeth suffered early on.  Once I was old enough to realize I needed to take care of them it was too late.  My back teeth (top and bottom) are in horrible shape.  They are all just jagged pieces here and there.  I have 2 crowns on my front that have been there for about 15 years.  My other teeth in the front are now cracking off.  I can barely chew anything.  I usually end up eating soup or very soft things.  I even have a hard time tearing bread. 

I have a stable job and an ok salary.  Unfortunately, my job does not offer dental insurance.  I probably couldn't afford it if they did.  With the amount of work I need done, insurance wouldn't even begin to help me.  My credit is not good enough to secure a loan large enough to help. 

If anyone knows of a specific dentist or group that could help with a payment plan I would be forever grateful.  I live in Jefferson City but would be willing to travel anywhere in Missouri for help.  I just want to smile again....or be confident talking to people.

Hi kanealii45

 Yes , many of the dental programs listed here should be able to give you assistance with your dental challenges . You might especially try the Donated Dental Services in your state.

I am so sorry that you have to live with disability and on top of that , have to deal with these dental problems. I will keep you in my prayers.

I have a twenty yeear old son that is in great need of dental work. The kind of work that he needs done has to be done by an endodontrist. We can't afford dental insurance and can't afford to pay large amounts at one time. We are low income. His health is suffering from this problem because he is always getting infections due to this problem. If  you can give me any information that may help please email me at
