Dental care can be expensive. In today's depressed economy, the high cost of dentistry can be prohibitive for millions of Americans. So where does a person turn to find affordable dental care? Are there any options for free dental care near you?
Affordable dentistry and possibly free dentistry is available in most areas of the country, but you need to know where to look. Here are some suggestions.
Your Local United Way Office
United Way is a coalition of charitable organizations, with chapters in all 50 states. The United Way office in your area will have a listing of any nearby free dental clinics or providers.
If nothing is listed in your immediate area, don't give up. Ask the local office for the telephone numbers of any United Way offices in the surrounding area and check with these offices as well. A short car or bus ride is a small price to pay, if you are in pain and in dire need of dental work.
