    The Dentist Is Flipping Expensive

    Last Friday I went to the dentist to have my four wisdom teeth pulled and it cost me damn near two thousand bucks. Not to mention that it hurt like hell and I couldnít eat solid food for 3 days. I bet that I was in and out of that place in and hour and a half.

    Then once my mouth heals nice and I return from vacation I need to have braces put on a d Iím sure thatíll be another two grand.

    Iím in the wrong damn profession

    I have Blue Cross Blue Shield, which is a major insurance carrier, and they told me that they donít offer dental insurance. So I asked them whom they could refer me to and the guy told me that they donít recommend anyone. Thanks a lot.

    Even a low paying job in Canada should supply a dental plan. If they only offer you minium wage it should come with benefits . It means a lot to a family man or womam ,single people don't worry asmuch till they need it .


    Example if you start at $12.00 to clean a warehouse and they add a good medical plan after probation that could work out to an extra $2.00 an hour if your a parent .


    Edit : Should add medical plan includes prescription drugs,eyeware, basic dental and life insurance . WITH OUT that you might as well stay on the dole and let the government supply for your family.

    for that amount of money, did they at least give you general anesthesia and good drugs?
    Don't read what isn't there.

    If you're getting minumimmm wage here in the states chances are you're getting no medical, not to mention dental. Theres only a few companies out there who treat unskilled workers fairly i.e. Starbucks, Trader Joes. If you're on the "dole" or welfare, you've got bigger problems to worry about, like how the hell do I stop stealing aluminum siding to support my meth habit!

    I think I can apply for free dental care...should really look into before all my teeth fall out. I don't think I'd make as much money off the tooth fairy as I used to as a kid.

    I'm an NHS dental patient.. not that I really understand what it all means, except I have to pay £15 for each checkup..

    Luckily, I haven't had to have any more work done yet.. (fingers crossed)

    Well thatís the one thing that Iíve learned from this ordeal; donít wait until thereís something wrong with your teeth to go to the dentist. I learned that lesson the hard way.
