A.V. answers from Phoenix on September 27, 2008
He will probably have to qualify for AHCCCS - which is Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System. The number is 602/264/0422 or 1/800/962/6690.
Good Luck, and I hope he heals quickly. In the meantime he needs to probably do quite a bit of natural antibiotic healing to help with his infection before it gets a whole lot worse. Or can he afford for at least a one time visit to a Dr. or dentist for an antibiotic prescription? He might not even need an oral surgeon...maybe he just needs a root canal, which a dentist can perform.

Call a dentist, tell him the situation, and get your boyfriend to the first one willing to work with you ASAP. This is a dental emergency, and you can worry about the money part later. Most dentists will establish a payment plan, or lead you to an independent financing situation through their office.

Hi A.. I'm sorry to hear about your boyfriends job AND his teeth. He can try going through ACCHCS. Here's a website that might be helpful. http://www.freemedicalcamps.com/freeclinic.php
I saw someone elses post saying that the County Hospital will extract the tooth for $100, but you have to wait in line early and you have to pay upfront.
Someone else also mentioned Spencer Dental. Look that up on switchboard.

H.C. answers from Phoenix on September 27, 2008
If his face is swollen, I am 99% sure it's abcessed. I've been going to the dentist since I could remember. I have had multiple teeth abcess (genetics). I've had 5+ root canals, tons of fillings, etc. I feel like an expert sometimes. He needs to get to a doctor immediately! When I was 15 my face swelled out and my dentist made me go the hospital, yes the hospital, and I had to get an I.V. and have the tooth pulled immediately. Your boyfriend needs to get help ASAP. Abcessed teeth can be fatal. I would just start calling dentists and ask if they would be willing to do a payment plan. I don't mean to scare you but I want to be realistic.
Best of luck.
