Dear Betty,

Sorry to hear about your problem. Dental treatment can indeed be very expensive but these days there are cheaper alternatives available. You can search of cheaper dental treatment abroad (medical tourism). Email the doctor your reports and complaints and let them give you an estimate and a plan of action. You can discuss this with your dentist and see if the plan is suitable or not.
