Angry Help!

I live in Denver, CO and I went and saw a dentist on Saturday and he said I have to have all 5 of my upper crowns redone plus root canals on all of them. The problem is I have NO MONEY!! I called the county dental office and even they want bunches of money!! I don't know what to do except writing some bad checks -- Anyone-do you know of any other options, I am up a creek!!

Re: Help!

I would talk with the dentist and explain your financial situation. Maybe they can arrange a payment plan for you - have you considered a second opinion? this sounds like alot of work and alot of money for the dentist. I dont trust them - you may want to have someone else take a look.

Re: Help!

The problem is I don't have a regular dentist and I have awful credit so financing is not an option. I think writing a bad check or a couple of them is my only option.

Re: Help!

well,i think the only solution is to go to another dentist ,see if he comes up with the same treatment,if they do,then perhaps have one done at a time pay one thing ,then once youve done that get the next treatment done

you only get in worse debt with a bad cheque

Re: Help!

a bad check is not a good idea....it will come back to get you and then they wont continue the work....maybe if you are up front they will be helpful....hay its worth a try.....hay do you have a dental school in the area? they do work for free....its a thought....they have them here in boston and they do all your work for nothing and its a teaching situation.....something to consider....??
