I don’t have dental insurance, and I am on a semi fixed income. I had to move to a different state which meant changing dentist. Before the move I went to my old dentist at least once every six months without there being to many issues. Though I knew that I still needed three small cavities to be filled.
I had the work done by the new dentist in the state that I am now in. The new dentist stated there was a good chance that one of the cavities would need to have a root canal. So in stead of waiting for that to happen I let him do the work which cost me with the crown about $1800.00. The other two cavities he said were small so I only needed the filling which he also did.
Here is the problem, I am now having pain in one of the two fillings. There is no way I can afford another $1800.00 ! I feel as if he did not do the fillings right on purpose so that this will happen and I would have to come back for more work.
The reason I feel this way is because they did take a discount plan I had. I started to think that maybe having a discount plan was not a good idea. A good dentist would not have to take a discount plan to get customers would they? I feel sucker into buying a discount plan but I could not find insurance and do not have a job that offers dental insurance. The office was slow and not as clean as I would have liked. The staff was small and seem like they did not want to be there. Lastly I am in pain… When I was not in pain before he did the filling.
Should I see another dentist or go back to this one and call him out about what is going on.? Either way we are talking more money that I do not have. I just feel used and taken advantage of. This is making me sick and if I need more work I would have to sell off things just to get money to do it. This just dose not make sense to me. Please help what would you suggest?
