Dental Work for Troy & Kat

$380 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 7 people in 2 months
Hi, I am trying to raise money to cover dental expenses for my wife Kathy and myself.  Kathy had the misfortune  of having numerous medical problems as a child and one of the lingering results of those issues were very soft and discolored teeth as a result she has already lost many of her teeth and needs extensive dental work to save what remains. I, on the other hand, have been lucky to have fairly hard teeth, however several decades of not being able to afford regular trips to the dentist are catching up to me and I will soon need quite a bit or work done as well. Unfortunately despite the fact that we both work, we are barely able to pay for our regular medical insurance (under the "Affordable Care Act") let alone dental insurance. This being the case I am starting this Go Fund Me page to try and raise funds for our much needed dental work.

Thanks!

First, thanks sooo much to everyone who has donated (both via Gofundme and through other channels), Kat and I really appreciate your help!

Second, I have made my first couple visits to a dentist, or rather dentists. We learned from one of my uncles that Loma Linda University has a dental school that charges significantly less than your average practicing dentist, you just have to get things done on their time schedule and in the, very thorough, manner they do things.

So I have had two appointments involving having photographs and X-rays of my teeth, moulds of my teeth being made and misc. probing of teeth and gums. My next app. is supposed to be where they will go over their findings with me to create a "game plan" on what to work on and in what order.

Of course the irony has occured to me that I, an opponent of young Earth creationism, am getting dental care at a Seventh Day Adventist university (modern YEC has its roots in the SDA church) one which plays host to the Geoscience Research Institute no less. Hopefully this will not deter further donations or cause those who have donated to regret having done so.

Kat has signed up an LLU as well but hasn't had her first app. yet.

Thanks again everyone!
