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 on medicare and have no dental insurance. I went to the community dental free clinic. No free, initial cost $161.00. That was for evaluation only. There is free dental at Social Services. Extractions only. What is a person to do? Teeth are a health issue. I am at my whits end. So much pain and no hope.

I need dental car in the biggest way.Five of my front upper teeth have crowns, bonding and quick fix for appearance. Missing 3 molars (not including wisdom) my bottom front teeth are pretty good, mis-colored and crooked. I'm only 56 on disability and simply cannot afford to have an appealing smile. It's depressing not to feel comfortable to smile and difficult to eat missing molars. Could you PLEASE find it in your heart to help me. Thank you and bless you.

my husband and I are on disability, he has heart disease, diabetic, and now an illness that no one can diagnose... He has such bad teeth and the infection makes his entire body sick and I am afraid that this will kill him. Can't anyone do anything about the lack of care in this country. we pay for reps. insurance for the rest of their lives, do they deserve care but we the people don't. wow I thought America was great. what a disappointment the leaders of this county Good thing we worked ourselves into a disability to make sure they are healthy!!
