My name is [withheld], I live in Westminster SC (Oconee County) and I was just wondering if you know any where that provides dental work for low income families I am willing to travel some where if need be.
I was going to apply for Medicaid I had to wait for our birth certificates to come in and about 2 days before they got here I got a letter in the mail saying that Medicaid no longer covers dental procedures.
Now I have a couple cavities that make me sick when I try to eat or do anything else for that matter. I have a prescription for Hydrocodone that the ER doctor gave me when I went there because my face was all swelled up from the infection in my tooth but I am a little worried about taking it because I breast feed my son and don’t want to pass any of the drug to him but on the other hand if I don’t eat then he don’t get the nutrition he needs. I am stuck in a rough spot and need help to get out.
Can you help me or do you know any one else that might be able to ? Thank you so much for any and all help!

A shame, but if you haven’t already found this < HREF="http://scha.org/scfmca_location.asp?document_name=oconee" REL="nofollow">link<> maybe it will help.
Thanks for the tip.>>The network of free clinics, which are reliant on volunteer doctors and donated medicine, is the “solution” our free market health care system has developed to serve the 37% of South Carolina residents with no health insurance. It works about as well as it can, considering.
Tell her to call the governor’s office. Maybe they can help.>>>Doug
Also meant to say good article in the Washington Post. You always did give good quotes.>>However, I was amused to see a sports analogy coming from a guy who’s totally disinterested in sports.>>Doug
