i had a tooth break off today, so i can understand and
sympathize. i don’t have insurance, either. in
november i had to have a root canal and crown, which
wasn’t cheap ($1600). I had done some research on
dentists (cheap, sliding scale, etc.) and if I lived
close to a dental school I may have gone that route
but I live too far away. My dentist was willing to
work with me on payment – he allowed me to make
payments over several months rather than all at once
and they never asked me if I wanted to apply for the
dental credit card.
I don’t really have any good advice, other than
perhaps you could find a dentist that is willing to
work with you on payments (without making you go
through the credit company that will charge interest,
etc.). I just finished paying my dental bill off last
month and will have to start all over again 🙁
