Rhelen, we use the dental school at the university near us and while the process was slightly slower than at a regular dental office (longer waiting time at each appointment), like Pamstegma wrote, the cost was significantly less than a regular dentist. It wasn't cheap, and my mom ended up paying for her dad's dentures, but it was still not close to what the private practice dentist charged. The exams are done by dental residents but they are supervised by a dentist professor (attending dentist?).

My in-laws have a dental plan through Medicaid too.

If you are a veteran, the VA may also be able to help you.

Also have you called your Area Agency on Aging? They may be able to help you since your situation is not uncommon, and they should be more familiar with what is available in your region.

I told you before and I will tell you again, the cheapest option is a University Dental school.

You could go to Medicare.gov and look at plans that do and consider calling them to change plans or purchase a stand alone plan in your state- unless low income you may qualify for denture coverage under Medicaid or sliding scale plan. Look at all options before calling an agent to quote you.
