Answer
Tanya - Having done a little research on your state, there are two residency programs in oral and maxillofacial surgery. I am not sure of their policy, but often these facilities provide an access for surgery at a lower fee.

They are:

1) Gundersen Lutheran - Lacrosse - (608) 775-2260

2) Medical College of Wisconsin - (414) 805-5781

Call the above and ask for an evaluation.  The residents in the residency program are assisted by providing patients.

Good luck, I hope they can help you.
