Hello Firstldy, I am sorry to hear about your dental problems. You can check in your area to find out if they have any dental assistance programs or a dental college in your area.

If you have an infection and feel it's urgent to be seen, please go to an urgent care or emergency setting and get help.

You can also post on our Oral Health community, but no one on a message board can help you. I think it's important for you to seek out help in your own community.

Let us know how you're doing,

Byroney

Well Byroney, I'm still looking for assistance. I found a place but its like trying to win the lottery. it's called the Ben Massell Clinic. they only take 25patients a week. however ehen you call the line is always busy, once you get through it tell you to push #2. . then the message says sorry we hve reach our limit of 25 for the week .Please call back next week. Ive been trying for 3 weeks now. We had a free dental fair in Marrietta, GA and people got in line 2 days ahead of time they had 200 plus people in line at 4am in the morning.. I dint find out in time. So they said they will do it again nexy year. but I need help now. So I had a idea to try and find those doctors that worked in that dental fair and try to contact them and see if I can have them to assist me.if you have any other ideas plz let me knw.
Thanks for everything and your concern it means alot.

First Lady,

I'm sorry to hear you weren't able to be able to take part in the free dental fair. Your idea to contact the dentists who participated is an excellent one. I hope one (or more!) of them respond positively to you.

I'll keep hoping you get one of the weekly clinic spots. Can you get a friend or family member to try and call for you on their own phone? That might improve your chances of claiming a spot.

Thanks for continuing with the updates. I'm cheering you on!

Byroney
