Let's Help Gina Smile Again

The Women's March  in San Francisco was Gorgeous, sunny skies, inspiring speakers, clever posters.  Comradary, heart wrenching tales....

I blame it all on Trump....Word of caution don't walk into the shade from bright sun without taking your sunglasses off.

The march proceeded from City Center
Walking down Market St, in the bright sun, looking for a baño.
 Spotting a Peet's I stepped from the bright sun into the deep shade without taking off my sunglasses!
I stepped down a step, into a sunken seating area AND took it on the chin. No hands, no knees, just chin. My first thought was "I broke my teeth"  I would have been better off breaking a hip.  As we gathered my teeth off the pavement I just knew what had happened and approximately how much it would cost. That's when I knew I must be concussed.  

Medical Insurance (thankfully I had it) covered only $1,897 of $7,500+ oral surgery.  My annual dental allotment, $1,750 for the year also was thrown in. 
My temporary teeth were another $892.
I'm looking at six crowns when the implant hardware heals.  $8,900-$10,000. 

I need help with these bills because the insurance my employer of >34 years provides is completely inadequate to the situation.  
I have written to the Women's March of the SF Bay area to enquire if they have liability insurance, no response.

I am and have been an exemplary Emergency and Trauma nurse and educator.  As time has gone on all hospitals have become more and more corporate with emphasis on patient satisfaction, door to discharge time. 
I have worked with my Human Resources Benefits coordinator and this is where we are. 
 I will appeal to the insurance company that restoration of teeth is not a cosmetic procedure more a dietary necessity.
