Help for low income Seniors in pain

My wife has suffered for over a month with a wisdom tooth. We have asked the Health Dept. for help and they examined and Xrayed the tooth. They referred us to an outside Dentist who we cannot afford, so we are looking for help with this situation. We qualified for 1/2 payment through the Health Dept. but that is only if done there. Is there a qualified Dentist/Oral Surgeon who can work with us and take care of my wife. It hurts to see her hurt. We are 69 and 73 and on Social Security, mine is Disability Social Security. They are telling us the cost of removal of a wisdom tooth is almost $500 in some cases.
