    Most people don’t realize how expensive dental work is until they need to go get something serious done. I commend these professionals who are taking time to help those in need.

    I have diabetes and have been without work for over three years. Eventually dried out our retirement and savings and could no longer keep our dental or health. Both my wife and I just need a little boost till we get back on our feet.
    We have always had good coverage until now. Have been without coverage for three months now.

    Any help will be apreciated
