Despite our best efforts, our 3 year old daughter needs extensive dental work. (Which is odd, because her twin brother's teeth are fine!) A lot of her teeth have cavities, and our dentist recommended having everything done at once under a general anesthetic. Our dentist has one surgery day per month at the local hospital, and our chance to get in is March 20th. All our paperwork and initial fees NEED to be submitted by the end of February to reserve our spot - the sooner the better!
The general anesthetic fee is the upfront fee, and it is $930. After they do all the work, they submit the bill (for all the work that was done) to our insurance company. (This could be in the thousands, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it! Whatever our insurance company doesn't pay, we pay the difference.) I have set our goal at $1000 to help cover the initial fee, the fee for the form her GP needs to fill out saying she's fine to have the general anesthetic, gas, and perhaps a feel-good toy for her when she's done. :)
We are looking for any donation you can spare for that initial fee. My husband's full time job just went down to two days a week and we are only able to scrape by at the moment. We are extremely thankful for any donation! Thank you!
