I took my DD to the dentist today to get a cavity filled. It didn't get filled she was to scared tohave it done the dentist couldn't work on her. When she was 4 she had a traumatic experince with a dentist. I don't know what to do. I am on a fixed income and have state medical. The problem is finding a dentist to deal with her fears and to take the medical. It makes me so mad :flame: that I have this and can't hardly use it. I'm going to have to pay for her dental some how. She also is going to need braces which is another great expense. The closest orthodontist is three hours away, then I have to worry about them being able to work on her.I am ready to get a dental insurance and pay for it myself for she can get good care. Are there any good dental insurances out there in the state of Missouri? Does anyone know how much braces cost ?(a ball park figure would be great).
