Ellie needs some dental work… a filling…

How much should a filling cost?

Well, at a normal dentist about a hundred bucks. But she has been to a normal dentist and because she is young and a bit freaked it didn’t go as planned.

He told us we need to go to a specialist. ‘It’ll cost around $2000.00-2500.00’

‘For a filling?!’


So off Danelle went to get her looked at. She came back and told me it was only going to be $1500.00 and that felt better.

The she rang to tell me she had read the invoice wrong and it actually turned out to be a mere $750.00

I didn’t think I would ever get excited at spending $750.00 on a kid’s filling, but right now I am ecstatic. Its all a matter of perspective.
