Must have been very tough for you, Burl. So were you able to find a good dentist after the ordeal? I think it's indeed important to look for a trustworthy one these days.

A few years ago, I also dread the dentist because he told me that I was overdue for root canal. But in the long run, the root canal has saved me from nights of toothache. He's also my periodontist here in Colorado Springs.

This is just too funny. I spent/wasted so many years advising doctors (and esp. dentists) on patient care. Right...they really listened. Show me the money, man! Cheryl Swanson

If your sister's dentist costs $900, how much just for your sister?


Ow Ow Ow!! I feel your pain. I'd rather have knee surgery than go to the dentist! Maybe you should call around and try to find a dentist who will offer an easier payment plan. And maybe you should get another opinion also. I once had a dentist tell me it was going to be $2000 to fix a tooth, then I went to my sister's dentist and he was able to fix it with a much simpler procedure and for only $900.

Good luck! I hope you feel better soon!
