Zev Kaufman, DDS responded:
Dear An_247032:

I understand you are concerned for your father's health. You can explore several options:

A local dental school, a hospital residency program, or a local health clinic.

These organizations offer reasonable quality dental work for a reasonable fee.

Depending on your residency, Medicaid is also available to pay for part or all of the cost.

In addition, if your father cannot afford a particular treatment plan, maybe the doctor can present a more affordable plan. However, you must speak to your dentist about this.

Unfortunately, there is not much more that I can help you with here, since this is really not a dental question, but a question of finances.
I wish you and your father the best of luck,

Dr. Zev Kaufman
