Tooth Pain and Affording a Dentist
I lost my job last year. I have been having some tooth pain over the last couple of months and the it seems to be getting worse. How can I find a dentist that I can afford?
If you are in the Greater Cleveland Area, we have several safetynet clinics. NEON and MetroHealth have multiple sites. These clinics treat patients with no insurance and use a sliding fee scale based on whatever Iff any income and your expense. Often they are booked in advance for several weeks however if you are in pain all of the clinics can see you on a same day emergency appointment.
