      shelly –

      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 🙁

      Good luck!!
