I've visited lots of dental offices this week and many were nice till I asked are they ok with dental anxiety patients and what are the ways to pay the bills. Everything upfront and no matter what happens to you they got their money. I have found a guy who listens. Nothing fancy or flashy on the outside,but kind and professional on the inside. Find yourself a dentist whom answers your calls when it gets though. Easier said then done I know.
Like I said... I'm in an emergency situation and I've shopped around for dentists. Now my tooth is abscessed, I'm on my fourth antibiotic and I am in a time crunch. I am not going to go get more xrays. Enough is enough... going to have to go with the dentist I have

Joselyn,

I"m sorry for what you are going through in finding affordable good comfortable care and sounds like you are really doing your self care. I had a friend who got in 2 motor vechicle accidents not his fault , well really totally changed his life and has some tooth issues for sure due to this. He has had really good experience going with a local dental school as far as financial its quite a bit less and they give him the options . He's been very happy with the care he's gotten from both the students and staff and he's also a very nervous patient but tells them up front and they've been really nice about it. I hope you find someone that works financially and comfort wise!

Thanks. Unfortunately the dental schools are not close to me and it's a long horrible drive in backed up big city traffic. I've already checked into that but don't think I could deal with sitting in the car for hours after sitting in a dental chair for hours with students. Thanks for your response. I hope I can find a miracle.
