I did visit dentists in US, but I want to visit the dentists in China. Thirty years ago, my dental insurance covers $2,500 per years, the dentists prefer my vist on november and January, so they can claim $2,500 in november and $2, 500 in January next year. To fix my three teeth bridge cost $5,000. It is equivalence in today's value at around $30,000. From the x-ray report, my teeth is very weak, it would last 6 months and I have to pay from my own pocket to maintence the bridge. From there to now, it has been thirty years, the bridge still strong. My last visit is to UCLA dental hospital. They advice me to pay for replacing my permament bridge to a removable bridge, and it was not covered by the dental insurance. I decided not to do it, then they offer to do it for free. Do you believe, it is free? (the insurance pay for it, they just want to get more money). Who will believe, the removable bridge is stronger than permanent bridge. I had invested some times to learn the dental technology and I had made two dentures, one for my mother and one for my father, these dentures cost me around $20. I used the ceremic teeth from China instead of plastic, these denture last for life time. I can't fix my own teeth, I might need to go to China.

Yes, I have been to a dentist quite a few times in my life. The last time it was for a root canal. Just as well that I have medical insurance.
