Hello,

Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer.

Please visit this link:

On the left hand side, there is an option to narrow your search according to payment methods.While taking negotiable monthly payments is entirely a dentist's personal prerogative, you might find your options there.

Of course, you will have to get in touch with them one-by-one and find out for yourself.

Another avenues of affordable dental treatment are:

1. Try getting treatment from a dental school near you . The charges are lesser than those charged by a private practioner.

2. Try to contact the local dental society in your area and see if there are any charitable organizations or foundations that will do your treatment for a reduced fee.

You can find the contact information of your local dental society by visiting :

Hope this answers your question. Feel free to contact me again for more information.

Good Luck !!!

Regards,

Could you tell me in your own words ?

The Financing Company, called Care Credit, in Canada, is apparently no longer taking applications due to economic situation. Or its simply the fact that when trying to apply online, errors appear as need to put in State, meaning its only for americans. I need a Canada website. And its not just a tooth ache, prior dentist stated due to Epilepsy, I need bottom gumline cut, and new teeth as Dilantin chews away at teeth in time. Then there is the matter of my daughter who needs braces which totals close to 10 grand. (Shrug)

Hello,

Thanks for responding.

Both the web links that I have provided are specifically for canada. If these links require youto be a resident of the USA then you might have to drop that option.

Dilantin has no effect on teeth as such. What it does it increases the size of your gums, makling it very difficult to maintain oral hygiene. Rather then going for gum surgery, ( being on Dilantin will make them swell up again), you should switch from Dilantin to another anti-epileptic drug that does not cause severe gum enlargement.


Im sorry but I cannot provide any other avenues of afordable dental care, than the 3 options in my first email.

Im listing them again here:

Option 1 : Please visit this link:

Option2 : Try getting treatment from a dental school near you . The charges are lesser than those charged by a private practioner.

Option 3: Try to contact the local dental society in your area and see if there are any charitable organizations or foundations that will do your treatment for a reduced fee.

This option of "you should switch from Dilantin to another anti-epileptic drug that does not cause severe gum enlargement" is not an option for me. I have been Epileptic for over 30 years, this is first and only one that comes close to working.

I obviously was wrong in asking this question for all 3 options are unavailable to me. Having own business, many believe you have money.
But being a single mother of 2 has proven that my kids teeth always and will continue to come first.

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX
