Check your phone book for a local dental
school, also check with your County Hospital. Highland Hospital, Oakland,
California has a clinic, as do many other
hospitals across the country.

I work in a dental office and deal a lot with ins. Individual ins.
usually is not worth the money. Normally it does not include major
coverage or it has 12 to 18 month waiting periods.Also insurance does
not cover at 100% for anything other than check-ups and there is
maximum the ins. will pay each year ($500-$1000). To figure out if it
is worth it, find out an estimate of the work to be done.
If you add
your copay and the amount you pay for the insurance, it is usually morethan the cost of the procedure. On the other hand, if you do not have
insurance you can ask the dentist about a discount for cash payment.
