My sister Patty is 50 years old and in need of free dental help. She has been terrified of dentists all her life. When we were young we had a horrible dentist. He would start drilling and hit a nerve. When we jumped because of the pain he would scream at us not to move. I don't think she's been back to a dentist since. Some of her teeth have already fallen out and the ones that are left look terrible. She worked all her life until her teeth started falling out now she can't get a job. Insurance was way too expensive but her daughter offered to pay for it. She finally has insurance. Here's the kicker. She finally agreed to go to a dentist. My father took her to his dentist who is very aware of her fear of dentists. After taking x-rays and doing an examination he gave her an estimate for pulling the teeth and dentures. $21,000 is the expensive way. $18,000 is the cheap way. Her insurance covers $1,000 dollars a year. What a joke.
She has difficulty eating and has lost alot of weight. I am worried one of these teeth will get infected and she will die. She needs help now. Has anyone found help on this web-site? She lives in Tacoma Washington. Any ideas or help would be appreciated.
