Like you said, most of the help is more up north as I live in Ottawa County in lower Michigan where I'm required to go to a clinic in not only the city I live in, but the county as well. The hygienists are not caring or sympathetic, the appointments are so far out in the future it's months before you can be seen and you can only call on certain days for appointments. I really didn't want to go when 3 close friends told me they had went to the same clinic, two went for extractions and they didn't do it right - same problem with both. THEY LEFT PARTS OF THEIR TEETH UNDER THE GUM. The third one wasn't given enough pain medicine and told she had to return and all they did was pack the hole in her gums with clove oil (?). I felt so bad for her because like me, she had to endure weeks of pain. I don't want to go through any of this.

Hello everybody. I have just found this sight. I am in Desperate need of dental care. I am 29 yrs old I have had dental problems since the age of 12, the dentist told me that my teeth grew in with no enamel. My family was very poor, but very loving, never had the money to get my teeth fixed. I am in school trying to make a better future for myself and my two boys ages 9&6. Two years ago i had to have two of my upper front teeth removed. I could not afford to get them replaced right away. I was saving the money then a year ago I lost my job so the money I did have had to go to supporting my family. I will be done with the MA (medical assistant) program in July 2012! And plan on going further in my education. Even though I am obtaining a degree and I am doing very well in the program I fear that I will not become employed because of my smile. To make matters worse my other front teeth are rotting right out of my face. Who wants to be greeted by a toothless smile. I am lost all of the free clincis or reduced fees clincis have no openings i call every morning for the last 6 months. I am in pain everyday and because of the condition of my teeth it even makes it hard to eat. I am not asking for handouts, but donations or resourse would be appreciated. I could work for services anything that would help me. Please keep your negative comments to yourself. I am not a free loader, I have ALWAYS worked very hard to get what I need, but with this I need some help. I just want to SMILE again:) Thank you for taking the time to read my post.
