Why don't you find a job that has dental insurance. Dental insurance will generally pay the first $1,500 and then you can finance the rest. You should pay for it like I had to, and don't make the taxpayer pay for it. We are already paying for the Wall Street bailout.
If she has Medicaid clearly she cant afford to pay the over priced insurance that a job will cost regardless of where she works. Companies charge their employees way too much money for insurance and even with the insurance she will still have to pay co-pays which are astronomical. Medicaid SHOULD pay for things like braces and not just extractions. They dont mind pulling them out for free but they wont help you preserve the teeth you have. Children should be entitled to services like braces, fillings and other means of preserving their teeth. That is the reason why so many children are growing up to become adults with little or no teeth of their own.

Thanks for sharing. I don't know what I'd do with my dentist. He has given me my smile and my confidence back. I hope you have a good orthopedic supplier in Albuquerque. http://www.armedical.com

It is sad that a lot dentists and such will not take medicaid. I am blessed with a very good job and dental benefits, but not everyone has that. I am not sure if it is greed on the Dentist part or just not wanting to deal with Gov. red tape. We do need to look at some way to assure that all have access to basic dental care. I am advocating an ObamaaCare type thing, but sometime of assistance for those that need it. Good dental health is a very important part of overall good health. One thing I learned recently that really bothers me is that a local dentist here along with several others are going to Africa for month to provide free care in the villages there. While that is noble I cannot understand why they be more considerate of their fellow Americans. They simple refuse you if have no insurance or dont pass a credit check....that tells me the whole point is GREED!

To all of those in North Carolina I just learned of a Dentist in Winston-Salem that takes Medicaid. He has an Orthodonist that refers patients too that also takes Medicaid. The Ortho only takes referals so you will have to start with the Dentist. The DDS is Dr. Pruitt, Miller, Stowe. Again they are in Winston-Salem so it may be a bit of drive for some. Hope this helps.

MY HUSBAND DIED 3 YRARS AGO. MY KIDS DO NOT RECEIVE SS FROM THE DEATH OF THEIR FATHER.. INSTEAD I WORK 2 JOBS AND I BUST MY ASS TO TAKE CARE OF MY KIDS. AMD NOW YHEY BOTH NEED BRACES AND I CAN'T AFFORD IT AT ALL. THEY ARE BOTH ON MEDICAID, WHICH IS THE ONLY HELP WE RECEIEVE SINCE HIS DEATH. SO NO, NOT EVERYONE THAT'S ON MEDICAID ATE LAZY. LIVE A DAY IN THE LIFE OF MY SHOES AND THEN TALK TRASH ABOUT PEOPLE WITHOUT DENTAL INSURANCE.

I can not find a orthodontist in Georgia that accepts Medicaid let alone covering cost of braces for children. Some of you said there are.... can you list office/doctor names?
I live in Dallas Ga but will gladly travel.
