Had a dentist appointment today at Dental Smiles, in fact I've only been home for about 60 minutes. As guessed, it's going to take many, many appointments over time to get everything done. Lots of cavities. Plus I'll eventually need 2 root canals. Those will be future expenses because each one would be approximately $800. But we're going to do a little bit at a time because I don't have dental insurance. Everything is out of pocket. Tomorrow I have another appointment, but tomorrow I'm just getting my teeth cleaned, for $146. Then until a family member sends money or I get approved for the CareCredit option, it'll be a little while before doing anything else.But at least it has begun.
