Wit wrang with him ??


You can always get inventive and blend up a burger .... naw maybe not .
Catherine
Oh noo THAT sounds appatizin Lennox, Here Maxi, try this wee blended burger pet laugh.gif

He's no got room for the second teeth tae come doon cos the first wans took up aw the space an even if they come oot there's still nae room at the inn cos his upper arch is too small.
So.........enter the 'Space Retainer' guaranteed tae stretch the upper arch of the mooth tae accomadate said teeth chappin tae get in......only on for 28days at a cost of 2500 dollars.

Ever wondert why when ye go intae any Dentist /Ortho's Office here why it's so plush? Well me an aw the rest wae teeth in Canada up therrs the reason laugh.gif
Lennox

You shoulda said afore Catherine, now that seems a lot for a space maintainer here in my office it woulda cost you $185.00 US plus the cost of the extraction say another $100.00 plenty left for a party in the summer .. huh.gif
Java
Don't listen tae her Catherine...in her office they jist stick a tennis baw in yer mooth...laugh.gif
Lennox
no for weans , we use a pingpong size for them huh.gif
Catherine
An therr must lie the problem Lennox, Max hus goat the pingpong size mooth but he's goat the tennis baw teeth laugh.gif

Yer kiddin me oan.... that's aw they charge in the States?
Our Benefits through Geoffs work cover half the cost an we pay the other hauf, maximum 3000 for Orthodontist work per single Lifetime.
Max hus yased hauf his up awready an he's only 8 laugh.gif

Dentist charges are 100% covered up to 2000 per anum per person, again that's Geoffy's Benefit package.
Benefit Packages are huge enticements in Employment here, the bigger the better obviously.
You could be offered more money but way less Benefits, and it's wise to go wae the Benefits for sure.

As fur the puulin of the teethls, cripes they look at ye in horror here.......too 'stressful' for the child and only pulled as a last resort. Ah told the Ortho ah kin assure ye if it's no oot itsel in six months time AH'LL be yer last resort!

Ah didnae know you worked in Dental Lennox, that's me learnt a new thing the day, heyhey!
Lennox
Catherine, Sorry for no getting back to you have to work and that.. huh.gif

Your Ortho fees are awfy high, there's a spacemainter and then there's Ortho , but even the ortho is way high , you should only be paying half of what the dental plan allows ie if the allow $3000 you pay half ins pays half and then if the dr is in network there ususally always is a differece of a 30/40% on that so you end up paying say 1200 give of take a couple bucks ..


If I were you I'd call the ins

A wee lad in my office had a tooth out and a space mainter his mammy paid is a total of $265.80 that was for the space to be covered for 3 months to allow the permnant teeth to erupt .

Hope Max can eat a wee bit better .
betty2
for Max
betty2
Just came in tae bank up the fire an put the lights oot , tongue.gif
Catherine
Biggetybig snow here again this mornin.........ahm fed up wae it biggrin.gif

Thanks for Max's wee smile therr betty, ah'll show him it when he gets up. Wee lazy bones the two of them are still givin it the big zzzzzz's laugh.gif
