In brief: Dental clinic / ER

If you live in a medium to large city, usually dental schools have free to low cost dental services.
That being said, it is very rare for a child to be uninsured - there are usually low income assistance programs set up through the states for children (medicaid). If your child is looking really sick, please take them to the emergency room (er) for treatment.
