The health department that serves your community should have dental treatment available but it may be on limited days. Call or go by and find out what you need to do. Good luck.

Here is a government PDF file article on dental care plans and programs available in Idaho -

Unless Idaho has a state-paid plan that does not pop up readily on the web, I seriously doubt if individual county health departments provide dental care to the populus in general. There are government programs under Medicare, for children, indigent care, etc that are free or low-cost, and the U of I has a program for low-income/indigent care at their facilities and dental schools commonly give very cheap appointments to provide patients for the students to work on - google this search phrase for links - health department dental care in Idaho

Generally speaking, you could contact a medical/dental insurance broker about available plans, but from what I have seen if you are not covered under a government or employer plan, most of the plans out there cost about as much in premiums as you can get out of them, because of low annual maximum coverage limits. Google this search phrase for info on thypical plan deductibles, copays, and annual limits - can dental insurance plans have annual coverage limits

Here is an Obamacare website link explainingthe limited coverage under that, and explaining about dental insurance types in general also -
