        Hello Scott. I am very sorry to hear that. Up until now we still haven’t found any individual grant for crowns and root canals. In fact, individual dental grant is currently unavailable in United States (to our knowledge). However, there are some other options, including:
        1. Getting help from families and local communities (such as churches, etc), they may be able to help a bit
        2. You can ‘exchange’ your service with the dentist. For example, someone who is working as a plumber might negotiate with the dentist to offer their service in exchange for lower fees. It all depends on your negotiation skills.
        3. This is pretty radical, but going abroad to get your teeth’s done is actually much more affordable than having the procedure in the States. Countries like India, Mexico, Indonesia, etc are known for their low medical cost.
        4. Ask your state’s Dental Association about the possibility of a dental charity event.

        Up until today we cannot find any specific dental grants made available for individuals. I hope that help.
