I felt exactly as you do, with my mouth in horrible condition and no help in sight.

The solution turned out to be a well-recomended dentist in Santo Domingo, capital of the Dominican Republic.

I had three teeth that needed crowns and root canals because they had broken years after fillings. These teeth hurt, they were unsightly, caused bad breath and made it hard to eat.

For $440.00 USD per tooh, this dentist has made each of my teeth look original, with crowns and canals included.

As readers have probably figured out by now, it's cheaper to get dental attention overseas, with a vacation, than to get dental attention in the USA, without a vacation.

Unlike dentists in the US, who leave a visible metal line where the crown enters the gums, my dentist sculpts each tooth so that the porcelain of the crown is inserted below/within the gums, so that no steel part of the crown is visible above the gum line.

Once all of the crowns and canals were done, I decided to give myself a treat: I've had braces on my bottom teeth since January and my dentist says these teeth are now perfectly aligned. He's charged me $400.00 USD total for thé whole process of straightening my bottom teeth.

My dentist only accepts cash or insurance. I have no insurance here.

So, I pay for food, gas and whatever else I can on credit cards and use the cash I save to pay the dentist.

My dentist knows about my psychiatric issues and even took me to his house for lunch one day when I was at his office, depressed and sobbing.

I have come to look forward to seeing my dentist at least once monthly. He and his staff are mental health assets to me as friends and people to check in with.

I have ALL of their personal telephone numbers and can contact the via Whatsapp (free Android download for free voice chat, text, voice messages, photo sharing and online groups. Works in any country to keep in touch while you'really traveling, as long as you have wifi or other Internet access.)

I can get an appointment with my dentist tomorrow or Monday, if need be.
