Will work for help with dental bills. . . .

A couple of months ago I called and made appointments for all of us to make our trek to the local Dentist. Now mind you this included two adults and 4 kids. I can honestly say that our dental insurance makes NO money on our premiums!

The day arrived and I schlepped the whole clan sans hubby (he was working) to our appointment. Well I was not prepared for the report. Here goes: 27 cavities, 2 root canals, and 2 crowns. You could have pushed me over with a feather. Forget donating blood for charity I was going to have to donate it for cash! I wonder how many times a week they'll let you drag yourself in? What made it worse is that I am a complete wimp when it comes to dental work. I would rather have my eyelids turned inside out than to have to deal with a drill in my mouth. Too bad I don't have a twin because this was one time I would force her to switch places!

Update. . . . we've had the two root canals, two crowns, and 8 cavities done. Whoo Hoo! Only 19 more cavities to go! I keep telling them once they're finished with us they're going to have to find another dental impaired family to help pay their salaries! Hmm, maybe my hubby and I will be able to afford that steak dinner after all! Although with all this bling bling in our mouth I'd be afraid to chew!

YIKES! Dentistry is not my favorite thing either. Give me a female check-up over a cavity ANY day! Hope all goes well. Maybe it would be worth a second opinion on the remaining cavities?? We used to go to a dentist that would want to fill anything and everything...had another dentist say that's a big dentistry scam, so now I'm always leary of massive work. And with 4 kids, we go through a lot of work, too!
