Braces please !!!!

shorty1111 started this conversation
Hi I am a 16 years old I need braces desperately and I have no insurance of any kind and i really need dental work , its just my mother and I and she doesn't make much and we cant afford them and i would like to be able to smile with confidence instead of embarrassment. please if there is anyone out there that knows of anyone who would donate brace or cheap price for brace because i think they range from 1000 to 6000 and thats just not possible for us.

Since in almost all 50 states you are still considered a child before 18, go down to your local D.S.H.S. office and tell them you need a CHILD DENTIST, and Medical. I can almost guarantee that you can still get childhood dentist help. DWiz

Hi, Shorty
I'm sorry you are dealing with that. It must be very hard to be at that age and be without nice looking teeth. I had braces at your age and have thanked my parents over and over since then, for prividing that for me. My daughter needed them for years and I could not afford it. I looked everywhere and found no help. I finally found an orthodontist about an hour away, that had a cheaper price (they are around $5000) and would accept monthly payments, instead of wanting all the money up front.
I really hope you find help for this. I wish I had the money to give you. If I did, I would gladly pay for you to get them! Hopefully, there is someone here who will be able to provide you with more info on this. I wonder if there are any grants for this? If I find anything out, I will let you know.
God bless you!
