I would go with the second option. Accessible, decent care for a low cost. We’ve had to use the county health clinic lately for some shots that FI needs for school, and they’ve been great. The facilities aren’t new or super nice, but we can get what we need and everyone we/he dealt with was really nice and helpful.

I’m guessing the dental school is Tufts?

I would do option 1 if she’s getting dentures. Like you said, dentures done wrong can be extremely painful and uncomfortable. for an extra $600 more I would do the first option if you can afford it.

I’d check out the second option thoroughly, but that would probably work just fine. Oftentimes community health centers don’t have all the bells and whistles or look pretty, but the care is just fine.

Your poor mom! You are a wonderful daughter for helping her.

I got dental insurance for like $13 dollars a month through a private insururer.  It gives a heavy discount on implants dentures, ect.  Its not perfect, but its not bad for $13 bucks.  You could probably get a more expensive plan that would cover more too.  It might be affordable to get your mom the care she needs from a more reputable professional.  (I can use whoever I want.)  Have you considered looking into private insurance? 

I know there might be a wait time, but it might be the best option.
