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 disabled still young at 50 years old and all my top teeth are gone. I was always a decent lookning man, now I can't even smile at anyone and I am afraid to try and ask a woman out because no pretty woman wants a man woithout a smile. It is depressing and it causes me to almost be a shut in at 50 years old. I can't live my life the way I should.

I am bipolar. I have been on Lithium (on/off) for over 21 years. A direct side effect of taking Lithium is that it rots out all of your teeth. I have researched two regular dentists that quote a price of $7,000. I need to have all my teeth extracted and get implants. I have also researched the "free" and Low income dentists. The free clinics do not offer what I need done, they only provide preventive care. The lowest quote I could get from the Low income clinics (including dental schools) is $3,500. I have no insurance and cannot afford any of the quotes. Could you please help me?
