Unemployed needs dental work

If one is unemployed near destitution and need urgent dental work (incisor tooth broke near the gum) How does one get help? When I say 'destitution' I mean DESITITUTION. Someone mentioned to me that Wits Dental School might be able to help but how does one get into the WDS? Whats left of tooth is hurting and I'm even prepared to have the rest of the root taken out inspite of having to contand with a gap when I smile.

I'm unemployed and can't afford a dentist, Can I get free treatment at a clinic like the Wits Dental School? Or something similar?
