Low income, single parent in need of help
is there any programs that can help pay for braces for my daughter.we are low income and i a.m a single parent that doesn`t get child support.
We live in Vancouver Washington
Most State programs do not cover orthodontics (braces). Even dental insurance programs limit their coverage to about 30%. I am not familiar with the State of Washington. You might try the University of Washington School of Dentistry in Seattle (http://www.dental.washington.edu/about/dental-clinics.html) and see what they say.
