Disabled Without Dental Care

Disabled without dental care? I have researched this topic at length for various reasons. The NFDH is a great resource for more information. If you know someone who is disabled and does not have dental coverage, consider visiting the NFDH. In addition, check with your local social services and support groups. Many support groups specific to a given diability can provide a wealth of information for not only dental work but for free medical services as well.

If you are reading this and have additional information/resources, please send me an email. I will gladly research the information add it to my site. Far too often people seem to forget about the importance of dental care especially for the disabled. Focus is always on medical and for good reason, but let's not forget about dental care for the disabled.

I have spent years participating in various online forums dedicated to helping the poor find dental care. Unfortunately, most of the poor are disabled and do not have the means to work nor commute very far. Dental care for the disabled has always been of interest to me simply because most advocates focus on health care. I will continue to research this subject and post updates as they become available. Take care and God Bless!

I am a disabled male and my teeth are terrible, probably the worst on here. I’ve considered meds to make me go to the dentist, even just for a check up, but I make myself panic at the thought of even contacting someone. I need help so badly and I’m so scared. It is at a point it is consuming my thoughts. I want to fix things but, it seems there is/was always something more pressing or important to deal with. I can’t even take anyone comforting me because, I’m so ashamed of the neglect. My teeth don’t hurt at all but, I can feel massive holes with my tongue and it makes me feel sick. I have broken teeth due to the amount of medication I take. I have difficulty sleeping. I’m a wreck… a nervous one… and in need of some serious help before I do something stupid…
I’ve thought terrible things, killing myself even… and I know how desperate that sounds.

Please someone hear this plea and give me some advice, I feel so alone and so ashamed. I need to find someone who has seen appalling teeth… really bad… so I don’t feel so bad. At the moment I feel like dirt, scum…
