A Personal Story: Living with Delayed Care – Brianna, White River Junction

Brianna is 22 and is pregnant with her third child. She lives in White River Junction, Vermont, and goes to a local free dental clinic, where she gets cleanings and has had two teeth pulled. She finds it difficult to get in for an appointment, though. Brianna has one tooth that needs a filling; she will have to wait six months before the work can be done. She’s never tried to find a dentist who might be able to see her sooner, because she doesn’t know of any others who will take Medicaid. Brianna wishes she didn’t have to wait so long to get her cavity filled, but overall she’s satisfied with her care, “They’re really nice there.” Her kids go to the same clinic she goes to, and are able to get cleanings and care there as well.
