dentists/doctors over charge for everything they do. i mean i'd be a bit worried about a mexican dentist too but i wouldn't be surprised if you got a decent job for less than 1/3 of the price of the same work in America. there are a lot of young dentists with probably less experience than a mexican dentist who are probably performing work all over America. i mean go to a reputable mexican dentist, if such a thing exists.

They exist pendejo. You act as if America is the only country in the world where you can get care. I know several people that go take care of medical, dental and eye stuff in Mexico and have never had any issues, the only difference is that they pay much less there.

Just get the tooth extracted. It's quick and cheap. It's not even that hard to keep your teeth clean. Hopefully you learn your lesson and have better oral hygiene.

Yeah, you could come visit me here in Korea. First rate dental practices in English. Cavity is $100. Root canal about $650 here in Korea. Go to Thailand and it's about $150 for a root canal. Medical tourism...the way to go.

look for a free clinic in your area. we have one here in my hometown and i think people get dental care completely free. buying your own insurance (not thru a job i mean) would be really expensive.

Thats definitely it.... you're literally keeping sugar with constant contact to your teeth all day long.

I'm not even going to bother coming up with some witty sarcastic response.

What the fuck did you think chewing 6-10 pieces of gum a day would do?

You do realize there are good doctors all over the world, right?

My uncle needed a triple bypass surgery a few years ago, he did his research and found a good surgeon in a reputable hospital in Mexico City, got it done for a fraction of what it would cost in the US and today he is leading a healthy normal life.

I think a good Mexican dentist can handle a root canal.
