Default There goes my AR (Keltek FRB) fund :(

My 7 year old doesn't like dental appointments much and we will pay for it soon. Her dentist scheduled her for 2 extractions a few fillings, cap and bridge and since she will not cooperate they have to do it in the hospital ER.

After insurance, my cost will be; $595.00 dentist, $75.00 hospital/ER, and $620.00 anesthesiologist for a total of $1,370.00 (could possibly be more)

I have to start all over again, my RFB have to wait SIGH.

I am so sorry. My bank account regularly takes a beating, too. I swear my car and all my appliances just know when I have a little saved up. Then they demand attention......and usually for more than I have.

Your child's dental health, money well spent.

That's too bad, but the kids and medical stuff do come first. (Cap and a bridge for a 7 year old?) I'm guessing the teeth are crowded and the dentist is making room for the adult teeth to come in?

It doesn't make sense to me too and still struggling since no permanent teeth on those area yet. I talked to the dentist about it and she insists it will help in the long run but I am not solved on it yet.

There is no way any dentist would put a bridge on a 7 year old. If yours is I would encourage you to seek another for a second opinion.

Look for a dentist that does anastasia dentistry. Hook that kid up with some Monkey perfume and they were never know what happened.

I think that there is accountant that says: Look, his account is getting higher again. Lets crack his radiator.
