Each state has universities which have dental schools. You can call your State Capitol and ask for a list of them. In my state, VCU has a dental school & a clinic where you can make an apt with a student, a resident or a faculty member - for various fees. Sometimes State facilities have a sliding fee
scale depending on your income. You can then tell the person working on you that you only want a certain type of filling, etc.
If you are a senior citizen, various dental insurance companies have dentists who provide services at a reduced cost. For LLMDs fees, you have to call the office and ask what the fee is
- they all charge something different. To find LLMDs you could visit your local Lyme group.

I had some of the worst dental care from the 3 holistic/biological dentists that I tried.
They don't use safer material than regular dentists. They put stuff in my mouth I was allergic to and dental work even cracked in under a year.
I found an older, traditional, understanding dentist who takes insurance. The dentist is fully aware of allergies and even has a fragrance-free office policy.
The dentist was around when nickel was used in dental work and people had allergic reactions, so there was no need for me to explain much.
I just use zirconium and fleck's cement for dental work and insurance pays.
You just need to find a really nice, understanding, traditional dentist who will work with you.
Not all are respectful (both holistic and traditional)
