God Story #2

For this weeks God Story , it actually involves with my current  dentist.  Since last year my dentist  told me that  I needed to  redo my  bridge  on the right side of mouth because it was cracked and there was  no way to  repair  it except to   give me a   brand new one.  A few years back I had paid for this bridge that he did out of my own  pocket  and I paid full price for it  because  I  did not have dental insurance back then.   Well it was time to do the bridge again, which I thought it was unreal and  now that I have dental insurance, it still did not cover the cost of my bridge.

Last year, I was  quoted that I would  still have to  pay  over $2000  even with the insurance claim maxed out.  There was no way  I could fork out that much money.  My goal this year was to actually save up  for this bridge.  I was   actually building my  savings account to save up for this procedure  However,   all that I saved up was  taken away  in June  due to fraudulent  charges  created  by  one client.  Imagine me helping  a client for 2 months then  they take it all back from  credit card  companies.  All that money disappeared… so I was stuck  trying to figure out the dental payment  I needed to make.

Unfortunately my bridge area started to feel  more sensitive so then I had to  talk to the dental office and let them know what was  going on with my life.  I  explained to them there was no way I could  afford a  2k payment on the  bridge that I  had  fully paid for a couple  years back.  At this rate I don’t know when I  will be able to do the  bridge. So I asked kindly if there was a  way to   negotiate  a  better  rate for me. Well, it turns out they emailed me last week to give me a new quote. I found out the receptionist  quoted me  wrong. In fact she told me that I actually needed to do a 4 bridge instead of a 3 bridge so its even more expensive because that would total the bridge to be over $4000 without insurance and  even if  I did use up all my insurance this year  I would have to make over $3000 in payments .Luckily , my dentist was very  kind to me and he actually offered a  reduced rate  for me. He decided to only charge half and take the rest of my insurance for the year but the final payment  would be  $945.  Not only is that  affordable but he has it set up for me to   pay this off  slowly  for a year. So that is less than  $100   a month  for me. Its rare to find   a dentist that actually care about  their patients and  are willing to work with them.  I am actually grateful that he  was so generous  to  give me this  discount.   It really helps me financially here  so I can actually get teeth done next  month.  I am so glad that I no longer need to stress over my dental work,  the universe really made  this happen for me.  ūüôā

Did anyone have  something positive  to share  from last week?  What was it? ūüôā
