I am a 15, soon to be 16, year old female who is desperately in need of braces. I have never been to a dentist before in my entire life and it shows. My mother is the only parent I live with and I have four other siblings. My father is the only one who plays child support out of the other three fathers. My mother tells me all the time that we can't even afford to get us an appointment. We are not on Welfare, but at school, we receive reduced lunch. My teeth are gaped and I have an overbite. My dream since a child was to have straightened teeth. Out of us five, I would say that my teeth are the worse. I'm asking for your help and I pray that you can help me. Not only is it a self-esteem issue, but a health issue: I have never been to the dentist before. So please, I beg of you, take me into consideration. Thank you.
