My name is Tuesday Cabiness, and I live in California. I am 42 years old, and in desperate need to find agencies or non-profit organizations that can direct or lead me to getting some dental work. I have had the same dentist for over 10 years, and he has failed in providing adequate and quality dental care. I have lost majority of my teeth, and I have many missing and cracked teeth in my mouth. I am embarrassed and ashamed that my mouth and teeth look like someone who is 90 years old. I cannot believe I continued to see my dentist, after all the poor quality of work he has done to my mouth. I do believe he tried to do the best he could, but in the end his actions has caused me much pain and humiliation. I do have the best insurance in California, but my yearly expenses for dental care do not touch the surface of work I need to repair my mouth, smile, and dignity. I have had two estimates from other dentists and their costs and fees to repair my mouth are $50,000 and $30,000. I do not have that type of money, and I do not have any assets or property to secure a loan for that amount. My situation with my teeth is getting worse and each day the clock is ticking before I lose the remainder of my teeth, especially the ones in front. I have major tooth decay with bridges, and they need repair as well. I have lost my trust with dentist, and don't know where to turn. Is there some agency or organization in my state that can help me? I appreciate any direction, advice, or suggestion on where to go for help. Thank you for your time and consideration.
