Contact your state's health department

There are various assistance programs that vary from state to state, so you may want to contact your state dental society to see if there are programs in your area.

Another possible source of lower-cost dental care is a dental school clinic. Generally, dental costs in school clinics are reduced and may include only partial payment for professional services covering the cost of materials and equipment. Your state dental society can tell you if there is a dental school clinic in your area.

AnswerLook into state assistance. They have coverage for unemployed people, most of the time. If you have the money to pay for the dentist, a lot of dentist will see you if you pay cash. AnswerEvery person has a heart. If you are unemployed and you ain't got a medicard, just have enough humility to go to a dental office and ask the senior dentist if she could treat you for no professional fee. Maybe some will say no....but there will always be one who will accept your plea.
