Question for Betty.

I am a full time student with no medical or dental insurance.  My wisdom teeth are causing a lot of pain and probably should be pulled.  What are my options for someone with very little money to spend?

Betty's Answer.

This is a really tough but common situation, not having insurance coverage for medical or dental problems.  The one resource that I've found is at the Anchorage Neighborhood Health, Fairview Center.  They are located 1217 East 10th Avenue.  For dental concerns call Catherine at 907-257-4661.  You will be asked to provide some financial information to establish that you are low income. This is a very busy practice, and you may have to wait for an appointment.
