Help Melissa With Dental Expenses
This girl has been saving up for a much needed root canal, but some other unexpected issues have cropped up. If anyone has a little extra, every little bit will help. Someone who works full-time, and is puts only good out into the world, shouldn't have to decide between taking care of one aspect of her life, and living with severe, constant pain every day. I know a lot of people can relate to this situation, and I promise to pay it forward when I can. I can't stress enough how awesome Melissa is, but maybe this picture can illustrate! The Melissa on the left is a happy, content Melissa. The Melissa on the right MIGHT actually be a possum... but is a pretty good representation of what she's like with severe, dental nerve pain: still adorable, but really fussy, and definitely not having a good time with what is going on.
The cost of the root canal is around $1,100. The cost of taking the day off of work, plus the extra expenses that have come up, is about $400.
Hey there. Melissa here. Just to clarify what is going on. I was quoted (with insurance) 1100 for a crown, and a root canal by my dentist. I have severe anxiety , panic disorder, and a fear of dentists in general. The only dental school I know if is at a place that terrifies me and is out of the question. There is not enough xanax or valium in the world. I also make "too much money" and have insurance so I cannot qualify for a lot of the low income clinics. The 1500 would also cover court fees for me to file bankruptcy, because currently my wages are being garnished for unpaid medical bills. Basically I am having a rough December here and could use ANY help you would be able to provide. I appreciate this a lot.
