A Personal Story: Can’t Afford It – Fred, Strafford

Fred, who lives in Strafford, Vermont, had this to say:

My wife and I are on a very limited fixed income. We are both 81. Our parents and then ourselves have always taken good care of our teeth. We have always had 6 month checkups and necessary work done. However, for the past four years we have only had annual cleaning and checkups as the cost has gotten to be more than we can afford. At my last cleaning it was noticed that I had one filling that was cracked and the remedy would have been $195. I chose not to have it done. The cost for oral health care is just too high – we can’t afford it.
