I don't know if this will help or not, but you can get a Dental HMO through MetLife. I have one and it costs me $12.29 per month (single, not family). You have to go to one of their dentists, but there are some good one here in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.
You do have a co-pay when you have major work done (exams, x-rays, cleanings, etc. are all paid for!!), and that is why I'm here. I need MAJOR work (I was hit and it broke many of my teeth, already compromised by long term treatment for chronic pain) and I need to find some assistance with my co-pays. I can make monthly payments, but my credit is poor.
Any suggestions?
I hope this info about the Dental HMO helps.! (I think Aetna has one, too, but when I checked the MetLife one was a bit better.)
Best to all!!

Hello everyone. I work for Kool Smiles in Tyler, Texas and through our emergency patient guidelines, we must take care of a patient in pain, even if they cannot afford treatment. If there is a Kool Smiles near you, I recommend you go there.

My wisdom teeth are shattered too... thats whats going to cost... the university here in Beaumont will clean your teeth and take x rays and all that for $20 im not worried about that i just need to get my wisdom teeth taken care of and make sure I dont have gum disease.. (i have signs)

I have also gotten reduced care from su clinica familiar. They charge on a sliding scale.

 in response to duvexy...   where in Texas can you get your teeth fixed for free? i've been looking for over a YEAR. Even the dental school only offers a discount. one extraction still costs over 300.00 - too much for me.
Talk to ratava
Actually that is not correct. Texas has which run an sliding scale basis in where they can get help with their teeth etc. Also, there are Universities in Texas where they fix Teeth for free. Now most people prefer to get their teeth fixed in Mexico because it is even cheaper then Texas and less rules too. Too much violence though. But, your Texas smear is not called for.

Texas is the worst state in the U.S. for taking care of the people of this state because ive researched free dental and almost all the other states has free medical and free dental for the people of the states and here we are almost the only state that doesnt have free dental we just have free medical.
it almost makes a person want to move to another state just for the free dental.

My name is Kim I am thirty-one legally single, and have no children. I am also a full time college student. About two weeks ago I was admited to the hospital for an infected tooth. I've tried to get help, but apparently there is none. I need help. When I was in the hospital they told me I was close to having blood poisioning, yeah it could have killed me. 

I have bad teeth, they have been infected mulitipule times. I need at least seven teeth extracted. Please see my profile for more information. Please if you can... help.
