Ask your dentist: Usually your dentist will refer you to the oral surgeon. If you want to go directly call your local dental society office to get the list of local oral surgeons from that you choose weather they accept medicare or not, most likely they will, if you explain your financial situation.

Can my mom rent a scooter on medicare?

Not covered: Medicare does not pay for scooter rental. There are some pretty stringent requirements for who qualifies for scooter. My experience is most people do not keep using them as they are not convenient. It wouldn't be a bad idea to rent one for a month or so and see if it is really something she will use. Talk to your doctor about getting authorization for scooter from medicare.
