A Personal Story: No Way to Pay – Bernard, East Thetford

Bernard lives in East Thetford, Vermont. He has a problem. He needs to have four bottom teeth pulled and then is supposed to get a full bottom plate denture. He is 79 and has had good care from the free clinic; he will have the teeth pulled there for free. But he can’t go there to get the denture – they don’t do dentures. He has an appointment at a dental facility to make and fit the denture, but he doesn’t know how he’s going to pay for it. He receives $1,122 in social security income a month and “that don’t go very far.”  It’s making him very anxious and he hasn’t yet been able to figure out how he’s going to do it.
