Aracely, I think it takes a lot of courage to share something that you feel self-conscious about. Musole has pointed out some good resources below, but you could also check out some of your local university dental schools. I hear they sometimes do dental work at very discounted prices. Best of luck!!

Morning aracely t. I know first hand how expensive dental work is. As you've pointed out, it also makes it harder to get work too. Some states have charity or mercy care programs that help people with low or no income and with no insurance meet their healthcare needs. Check with your local state or county hospital and ask for the charity or mercy care department to help you with your health expenses. The application asks questions like past employment, any government assistance you're getting, other sources of income. Other questions may depend on the state you live in. The American Dental Association (ADA) also has a similar program which you can find here: . There is a list of other organizations or charities that offer free or discounted services: I hope this helps,, please reach out again if you have any questions.
