Thank you very much for your reply. I will look into dental schools to see if I can get a deal. I am trying to save up to do this and looking into dental insurance so it won't cost too much out of pocket. Well the $800 they are wanting to charge is for what they call a DEEP cleaning. I am not sure about root planning. The receptionist told me that they charge people without insurance the highest possible charges. It seems like it should be the other way around, but its not. I am still looking for affordable medical insurance. My husbands employer covers him only and the baby and I are left without insurance. I have been looking around and nothing seems to be affordable and most plans don't include maternity so if I were to become pregnant again I don't know what we would do as we are living pay check to pay check. As I said the state denied us insurance. I am worried about becomming pregnant because of this. My son was born C-section and there is no way I can afford a 30k c-section for the second child. I think I might have to have a VBAC at home, but I don't know who would do it. In az they say its illegal but I don't know what else to do. Well I am getting off topic here. Thank you for your advice.
