hi my name is rachel, i live in louisiana. i am a single mom to three daughters, 23, 15, and 6. i am recently not working because i just had gallbladder surge. several years ago i was put on a narcotic pain killer for my back and after i found out one of the side effects were decaying of the teeth, i found out long after about it. well now all my teeth are decayed and broken, i do have medicaid but it pays for dentures but not for extractions, i stay with infection, i cant hardly eat anything, i have to eat like soup, icecream, shakes, all soft stuff because i cant chew. i cant find a dentist to help me. i went to my family dentist and he wants to charge me 700.00 dollars for the extractions and i cant afford it so i was wondering if anyone knew of any dentist that goes by ur income? any help would be greatly appreciated...THANK YOU....Answer Question

Hi, Rachel! I'm sorry to hear your teeth are so bad off. My BIL was in a similar situation, and he isn't much older than you. Here's what I suggest!
Visit www.LowCostBenefitsPlans.comClick where it says Locate a Provider and see who in your area does dental work. There should be a list within driving distance. IF there is, our plan can offer you great discounts - up to 80% off...Â However the plan is $14.95 for a single ($19.95 for a household) and there is a $20 reg. fee. I don't want you to join a program that won't help you though. So, contact a dentist or two on there. Tell them what you need done and ask them what it would run (roughly) with and without our plan. I'm gonna guess you could save close to half if not more.
