My periodontist told me today she'd like to schedule me for a gum graft for a couple of problem areas. I thought that sounded unpleasant, but was willing to go along with her game plan until the front desk people said it would be $1870. HAHAHAHAHA HA. And HA. (The total without insurance would have been a little over $2400. Our crappy DMO will give us a 25 percent discount, but that's it.)
I'm going to go with Plan B, which is to pretend the periodontist was just kidding.
