Act 162

When it comes to dental work, don’t be afraid to show your teeth.

I got a quote today for two filings on baby teeth. $381 plus change. Seriously?

I called my (former) dentist and told them it was prohibitively expensive and I will no longer be a customer because judging by the quote, I’m clearly a customer, not a patient.

I’ll take the quote and shop it around to see what other dentists have to offer. I don’t hold out much hope. Dental care is not affordable unless you have a plan and because you have a plan, the rates are higher. It’s price fixing and in any other industry, it would be illegal. It should be illegal. I feel robbed. So I’m showing my teeth (and the quote too).
