Braces

Assistance for braces

01/08/2009

Question:

I live in Columbus, OH and I have a child who needs braces. I can`t afford it and my insurance has no coverage. Is there any type of grant or assistance that I can apply for to help pay for this?

Answer:

There is not. I would sugest you try the orthodontic department at Ohio State University at (614) 292-9100. It is not free but the fees are reduced. At least try to get an exam and find out how urgent the problem is.
