Hello. I saw that you used to work with Samantha Greer. I have just made an appointment with her and have seen all the reviews available online. The problem is that most of them only included surveys from 10 people. I signed up for the Carington 500 dental discount plan and she is the closet to me. I'm terrified of the dentist and as a result haven't been in some time. I know that I need a lot of work done as in at least one crown and eight fillings redone. I see in your post that you say that many people complain that she recommends work that doesn't need to be done, but is she competent enough for what I need done? I'm really bad for grinding my teeth and that is causing me issues so the quicker and better I can get those problems fixed the better it will be. As it is now I'm almost afraid to wear one of those guards at night. Not sure if I'll mess my teeth up worse. Thanks.

Good Morning! I am a 43 year old white male, live with my parents, have my 18 year old son living here also and live in a depressed area of Ohio. I made just under $10,000 last year. 25 years ago, I broke my front 2 teeth. They were filed down and had a cap put over them. Last night they decided to break off. After they fell out, I noticed that the caps must have been too big because the teeth on either side of the caps are cracked and will probably need replaced also. I contacted Medicaid and because my son is 18 (what that has to do with anything is beyond me) they said no help was available. I've spent hours on the net trying to find help to no avail. As you can imagine, $10,000 with your son living with you leaves you absolutely nothing for dental, vision etc. My life isn't the greatest, but I don't do drugs or drink (although, if I did, then I could get help), all I need is a little one time help here. Since the teeth fell out, my self esteem has hit rock bottom. I can't smile and now my speech has been affected. I know that you probably can't help, but I saw this and figured that the worse that could happen is being told 'your screwed'. Been told that a couple of times today already, so what's one more? :-) Thanks for taking the time to read this!! TS

I really hope someone can help....situation is boyfriend is 29 years old and has had major teeth issues (from neglect) for as long as he can remember. He has medicaid insurance, which denies most work and due to pain and financial problems, he has had 8 teeth pulled and is now wearing a partial denture, which fits terrible, is painful and annoying. He needs to get either implants (i know VERY expensive) or a permanent bridge (also expensive). I have been looking into dental schools in the area, but they have a long waiting list and are supposedly about 20-25% less than a private dentist (which is still alot). I dont know what to do. We are located in Nassau County, which is on Long Island, NY. Please any suggestions, help!

 in response to Mommysaysouch...   Where are you located? How far can you travel? Did the office tell you why they needed you to come in for two more appointments? Did you have an x-ray of that particular tooth or all of your teeth? Do you remember anything mentioned like periodontal disease?

TIP: You can always ask an office for a consultation so you can have a chance to get to know the dentist and find one in which you feel comfortable.

I am a stay at home mom with a mouth full of pain! I went and got an exam and stays done at a place where the dr doesn't say two words to you. We decided to focus on the tooth that bothers me the most to be root canal or pulled. I don't have 2000 to get a root canal so I called to get it pulled and they want me to do two more $$$ appointment before. I it want it out so is can enjoy my kid without a washcloth of ice Tony face

Hi Leadinglady, Here is a link to the free dental clinic events in NC to the end of 2011. Also, it would be helpful to get into regular care and new x-rays. Go here to find the nearest dental hygiene school from the drop down, state menu and make an appointment. Keep in touch.

I am a hard working parent that takes my job as a parent seriously. I work full time and I have 3 beautiful children that I spend all the money I make ... taking care of my children's needs. After all is said and done there is never anything left for me. I am in need of extensive dental work due to years of postponing what I need to do for myself. How can I get assistance? I am concerned that my dental problems will lead to serious health problems ... as it is I have both loose and missing teeth.

I have seen your posts, which I found by google. I live in Lakeland Florida and have a horrific mouth. Cosmetic dentistry is desired, but I have a specific tooth that needs to come out RIGHT NOW causing severe pain and suffering. Do you have any suggestions for a money tight household?
