Save Marc's Mouth
Organized by: Marc Power
I recently saw a dentist for the 1st time in over 6 years. The news I received from the dentist was devastating. I was told I have 7 cavities, require 4 crowns, and 2 root canals. Upon my initial visit I paid $389 for x-rays. consultation, and the 1st of 2 deep cleanings required before even starting to repair the damage caused by neglect of not seeing a dentist. In my current budget I cannot even afford the 2nd deep cleaning of $140 yet alone the almost $9,000 it will take to restore my mouth back to its healthy state. If not taken care of now, it will only be more painful, and costly in the future! Please help me pay for this. In June 2009 during the height of the recession I was laid off, losing my health insurance. Since then it's been a very long road of dipping into poverty, and overcoming financial obstacles. In my darkest hour in September 2011, I opened my business, and my hard work is finally starting to pay off, but something of this magnitude, this luxury of having a clean healthy smile is still out my of grasp for @ least another 18-24 months. Unfortunately my teeth don't have that long to wait for my financial situation to turn around. Please help me!
