Thanks smilemomma ! You are right... mostly I just freak out when somethng like this happens... feel anxiety, etc.
I went yesterday and sat in the waiting room for 5 hours till there was a no-show and they saw me. Actually it wasn't a no show, they just got tired of waiting more than an hour for their appointment and left.
I have state health insurance (for the poor folk
) and it is the state's dentists - a large office with 5 dentists, a denturist, and more. I would call and complain how they never called me back but I wouldn't know where to start; all the people there are so tied up in red tape it's a wonder anything gets done.
Right now I am just so glad they fixed up my tooth
It just needed a rather large filling. It had a root canal years ago, so there was no pain, except a bit at the gumline.
Thanks again smilemomma... and I really hope this thread helps someone else someday too... Now when you plug in "broken tooth" in the forum search it will come back with something
