I doubt it – but check with Social Services to see if there is a Rural Health Network dentist in the area – they go on a sliding scale basis (or free) OR check to see if there is a dental college in your area. That is the new place for people to be going to get their dental work done – it’s done by students, supervised by the dental professor, and it’s way cheaper than a regular dentist. Don’t worry, the students have already gone through their learning, it’s just a little practical experience they need. You won’t know the difference between a dental student or the regular dentist.
