I live in South Dakota and have been working day labor to make it. Have secured position with local company starting next week. Need assistance with obtaining a partial for lost front tooth I would appreciate any assistance being able to open mouth without making people cringe. My job offers no insurance as it is classified as part time at 32 hours per week. Any dentist willing to assist would be a blessing.

Free Dental Work, dentures: My father's teeth are rotting away due to chemotherapy that he received for a

My father's teeth are rotting away due to chemotherapy that he received for a tumor that he had in his neck over a decade ago. He has zero insurance and my family's AGI is in the low $20,000 range. Primarily due to my father being unemployed and my mother being on permanent disability. Although he has been tirelessly been looking for work, he has been turned downed countless times due to his teeth. I believe that all of this has also caused him to become very depressed about his situation.

We live in Shiawassee County, Michigan, and I just need to know what my options are. I have about $1,000 saved so far, but I know that would not cover all of the required dental work and this is something that needs to be taken care of soon.

If I can find a solution that could fix my father's teeth, it would be a miracle for my entire family.

Thank you.

Hello...

My name is Sheri, I'm 39, mother of 3 beautiful boys.

I posted this below a a couple of years ago with no luck, I'm to the point where I'm desperate!

.........................................................
About 6 years ago I got sick with a major infection in my mouth... Since then all my teeth are rotting out and I'm in constant pain. For the last 2 months I haven't been able to eat solid foods without being in so much pain its unbearable. My husband does not have health or dental insurance since he started his own business and since my teeth are so bad, nobody will hire me for a job. They assume I am a drug addict, and they treat me like an outcast. It's to the point where my health is getting very bad because of the contant infection in my teeth. The worst part of it is I've tried to do something about my situation, but it's hard when I cant get a job to get my teeth fixed... My husbands business is new, so we are broke. We hardly have enough money to pay for our bills, let alone a few thousand dollars for dental care. I can't find a dentist who will do payments. They all want the money before you walk out the door. Which unfortunatly we are unable to do.

For the past 3 years I hardly leave the house. It's so bad that I cry myself to sleep everynight, because of the pain and because of the humiliation. I haven't smiled in years... and it's effecting my children. They never really have seen me happy.

I'm asking for help. Which is something I never thought I'd have to do. If I don't get my teeth fixed soon, it will be harmful to my health. I'm willing to pay back what is given to me, if they want to take monthly payments.
...................................................................................................


I'm at my wits end, I really don't have anywhere to turn to at this point. My extended family has no money to spare, we're all broke it seems. My teeth are getting much worse..I have a swollen jaw as we speak. My weight is down to 109lbs (from 140) because I can't eat. I feel like I'm losing a battle with my health and my life. We try and try to save money, but it seems like as soon as we have almost enough to do something... car breaks down, unexpected bills, something always seems to take it all away.

If someone helps our family I would be so grateful. Like I stated above I would pay back any money that is loaned to us, written contract if needed.

Thanks so very much.

I am in ned of dentures. I had all my teeth pulled over a year ago and now my gums have shank enough to be able to get a good fitting pair. I am no longer working, hince why I'm asking for help. I want to go back to work but as we all no, appearance is everything. Employers want someone with a perfect toothy smile, not a gapinghole that might scare the kids or give the customer the wrong impression about the employee,
With new teeth I can get a job and feel better about myself!
Thank you and God Bless

I wrote about myself thinking I was writing to someone, a team, a board, anyone that could hear my story and may try to imagine walking anywhere in my shoes for a little bit and maybe willing to talk more if needed or get some guidance on who can help me. Thank you for taking your time to learn more about me.

Dentures: I am in desperate need of tooth extraction and dentures. I lost my job and healthcare

I am in desperate need of tooth extraction and dentures. I lost my job and healthcare coverage 5 years ago and have pretty much had to start over going back to college. I have been married 25 years and have three children. I have put off my dental care because I just can't afford it. My teeth are in really bad condition and hurt daily. I do not want a hand out but if I could get some kind of assistance until I get out of school and can pay them back, I would greatly appreciate it. Hoping I can smile again one day without being self conscience about my teeth. Thank you for your consideration.

dentures: I have been diagnosed with a severe case of depression due to the loss of my mother Sheryl

I have been diagnosed with a severe case of depression due to the loss of my mother Sheryl M Haworth an my fiance Scott H Butler. I had a lot of dental complications due to a very bad past physical abuse relationship an lost five teeth from being hit . once one tooth broke my teeth all started to crumble peice by peice an end resulting in only having two bottom teeth an very few top teeth . i'm a single mother with close to no income due to my tanf being sanctioned due to non cooperation in welfare to work classes. I'm humiliated to be seen by people with my mouth looking like this an have been denied my skill in working a good job i believe as well. i been taking prozac an other depression meds trying to feel somewhat ok in the real world again but my teeth are very important to me an i feel i will regain the confidence i once had in myself with dentures. i went to local western dental an they refused to even really work on them besides extractions an thats all the state medical i'm on will pay for . If there is a program or grant i'm willing to go any distance needed for help with my dentures an i would really benefit in my education an my future employment getting help with my self esteem an my appearence.. please help me it would be for a much needed cause an well worth the future outcome of my life . Thank you kindly .
