    Dental Care

    How do you cope with trying to maintain your dental care? I'm reaching out to fellow MSers who may be able to provide much needed input on where to turn for assistance.

    I am in my early 50's, divorced, on SSDI and have Medicare only. Although my Medicare Supplement does provide a 20% discount to my dentist, I'll be shelling out $4,000 to reconstruct failing teeth (old fillings) and removal of old root canal posts (gun infections) etc. Even with a discount, I simply cannot afford this.

    Hi there dm0329,

    There is help from the MS Foundation, even though it only helps with one visit and one follow up.

    "The MS Focus Healthcare Assistance Grant assists uninsured individuals with the cost of visiting their MS specialist as well as dental assistance. The grant, which can pay for one visit and one follow-up, is designed to assist those already diagnosed with MS who may need a visit to their treating physician to renew a prescription or handle other important needs. "

    Have you thought about going to a dental college in your area? Maybe they would provide care at a reduced cost.

      Call universities with a dental school. The one in my area offers dental care.
