Ow I have toothache!! So I go to the dentist in Thames and I have filling and the grand total is $1300 maybe more...how embarrasing..ekkk I knew they weren't good but didnt think they were THAT bad :huh:
So my question to anyone is "DOES ANYONE KNOW A REASONABLY PRICED DENTIST???!!!!"
I have a community services card and I know that some dentists accept this, I would be wililng to go to Auckland or Hamilton as friends travel those ways for work etc. I really don't mean to sound like Im so poor because Im coping....I have two little ones and work three jobs, I dont want a hand out from winz as I gave up on them a few years ago and went out to work!

Anything anyone could tell me would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks guys!! :hip:

Wish there was a competition for dental care!!!

If you have a community service card like myself you can ask for a referral to go to the dentist at the hospital. I was in really bad tooth pain and they referred me to the hospital, but I had to get all my wisdom teeth out. Its worth a try. Its so expensive isn't it. :hip:

Cool, Ill do my ringing in the morning...yes it does get a little expensive, especially in a town like Thames there isn't too many options so your'e forced to pay that much.
Thanks so much for your help, eases my mind a little might be able to get some sleep tonight :hip:

There is a place in Tauranga that is real cheap. Couple of people I know travel to Tauranga becaause of the price. Will try and get his name.

Five Cross roads Dentist was one of the cheaper ones when I rang around a few years ago. They have a cheaper rate for community card and they are open alot of late nights and Saturday.
They seemed have raised there prices in the last couple of years but it would be worth a phone call :hip:
