I am new to Forrest City, got a great new job but now I am layed off and have no money. My tooth has broke in half and I have no insurance or cash and I am literally dieing, I have to find a dentist that would be willing to take a payment plan. I haven't been able to eat, sleep, drink water, talk and sometimes I can't even move my entire body. I have had to go to the ER to get pain shots just to go to sleep, I am literally to the point of smashing it out with a hammer! Does anyone know of a dentist willing to help poor people? I have heard of the Memphis school and I am a college student myself, I am not sure if maybe that makes me eligible for any student help anywhere or not. I just don't know what to do. If I don't eat soon I will die or do something very drastic.
please

you can get it pulled for 40 bucks in marianna after 4 p.m. or prob capped at a local health dentist office...there is one in clarendon called mid delta based on your income prob 3o or so dollars...>they wont fix it but they will put a silver cap over it until you can afford to get it fixed the memphis thing you have to enroll and be involved with them over a long term period and they dont work for free prob 50 percent off and no there prob are not many dentists that will work with you take an insurance card in and pay the upfront fee and when your insurance don't pay you will be toldof the balance pay it out...best i can tell you. you can get it pulled for about 20 at a mid delta dentist office.
please

marianna co op clinic just off hwy one will pull it for a 20 dollar membership fee for the clinic that lasts for a year and 20 for the tooth being pulled.. 40 buck is actually not bad.

If u want an awesome dentist that is very honest and very good. Expects his services to be paid but will probably go for a payment plan. Go to Dr. St. John. He is the best. Doesn't have much of a personality. But he is kind, gentle, compassionate, honest and knows his stuff. Good luck.

There is also an income based dental office in west Memphis , not sure what all services they offer. They are in the same office as a doctors office. I think it's called east Arkansas medical if I am not mistaken. Call and ask for the dental department.

I'm thinking... you should have thought about the cost of repairing your decayed tooth, before you forgot to brush it. Start brushing now, to prevent future repair costs. ;)

Dr. Perkins is a great dentist and is easy to work with.... He does a lot of charity functions to help those who need dental help. His office might be able to help or steer you in the right direction. Hope you feel better soon.
