When he realized that his tooth pain wasn’t going to take care of itself, Allen Newman sought the help of a dentist.

He and his wife had been living below the poverty line before she died, and now that he had half as much income, he told Dr. Steven Lusk to do only what was necessary to relieve the pain.

Newman said he was ready to drain his savings to pay for a procedure.

“When you’re in pain, you’ll do just almost anything to get out of it,” he said.
