    The dentist has eaten my entire tax refund and an additional $1300 since December. We've paid $2700 out of pocket. Dental insurance picked up $4900. We're walking around with $7600 in our mouths. :box: My husband still needs gum grafts, fillings, cleanings. I need an additional crown. Some...

    The dentist I have, I've been seeing for about three years. He's a bit rough and gruff exterior, yet recognizes me in the grocery and says 'hi'. His work is good, but still a bit rough. DH is filling out insurace forms for me for dental (cause I'm not covered). Problem is, my dentist does not...

    Stopped at Aldi's after I went to the dentist and bought some stockpile items. 3 cans each of corn/lt kidney bns/dk kidney bns/black beans/chili tomatoes/mushrooms/frozen turkey rolls. That was all for making chili. The whole bottom basket of my fridge is full of frozen turkey rolls. So glad I...

    I was heading to school for a celebration day. I recongized one of Little Miss's classmates. Her face was swollen and she was crying. I ask her if she is okay and she shakes her head and says no. The nurse is sending her home. I ask why? She says the dentist pulled two teeth today. She started...

    Ok- so I go in on Saturday to get some fillings and a crown done. Military insurance pays for the fillings but only pays for half of the crown which will be 400Euro (about $650). I got to thinking: Do I really need the crown? When I was being seen by military dentists, they just put a...

    Dh and I have four kids and no dental insurance. We would not qualify for gov't assistance, just have no insurance, so I need to find an inexpensive place for teeth cleaning, etc. The rest of us go to Gentle Dental, but they won't take my youngest two kids, who are 7 and 4. Does anyone have...

    Dh has been going to him for some things over the last few months, and was really happy with him. Plus, he hasn't tried to talk us into anything costly, which made me happy. Well, I got to meet him yesterday, becuase the kids had appointments for cleaning, and I love him even more! :) He was...

    Yeah, I am so happy! DH had a dentist appointment on Saturday for the first time in well, many years. We have bounced from dentist to dentist over the years, and I have never been happy with any of them. They all seem to want to talk us into things and procedures we didn't need. DH has...

    I just got back from visiting my dentist, I had a cavity taken care of, first one I've had in a while. :dis: It was a little more labor intensive since my partial hooks up to it and cost me $195. Cleanings + check up runs about $95 I think. No dental insurance here. I used to go once a year for...

    I just went to a new dentist two weeks ago. I have dental insurance and the whole visit should have been 100% covered. I went to leave and the receptionist said that I owed them $112.00. I said, "but I have insurance, don't you bill them for this"? She said "No, we take payments up front and...

    And I'm so upset. It was all I could do not to cry in front of the dentist. I have severe plague built up around the 2 front bottom teeth and periodontitus has set in so bad that they wouldn't clean them today because the plague was probably holding my teeth in. So I have to go back in a month...
