never trust anyone with bad teeth

I have a carny mouth. Should I get dental insurance before I decide to take care of it? No pain, but several cavities and a few teeth (including two wisdom teeth) have been rotting and falling apart for several years. 4-6 years ago, a dental school said that it would cost 4-5 thousand dollars and take 3-4 visits to fix. That doesn't include getting them whitened or anything cosmetic. Today, one of my molars broke in half and I swallowed it with some wasabi trail mix. That tooth only had a little speck of a cavity yesterday. [more inside]

Go to an out-of-network good dentist, or in-network dental factory?

Medical bill arrives with charges that I wasn't told about before treatment; can I argue against paying?

My dentist has sent me a bill for work done during two visits over the past couple of months; I thought that my insurance was covering everything, and my dentist's office never told me that I would be charged personally. I would like to dispute the charges; do I have a leg to stand on? [more inside]

How can I find a dentist for my boyfriend who has no insurance and is terrified of dentists?

My boyfriend needs to go to the dentist. He recently chipped a tooth, and hasn't been in ages. The problem is two-fold: One, he's TERRIFIED of going, especially because of his long time away from the dentist, and because of deep-rooted fear of the dentist and two, he has no dental insurance. He's agreed to go if I can find a dentist that will accept him without insurance and I go with him to hold his hand. How do I find a dentist that will see him without insurance and will be accomodating to his fears? 1-800-dentist seems secretive at how they arrive at their recommendations.
