I would DEFINITELY make a few more phone calls to different Dentists.

Here is why:

1) While some Dentists (maybe half) prefer to wait till infection heals prior to working on the tooth, the other half, will do the opposite and immediately begin to tackle the tooth's problem, which will in turn bring quicker healing and quicker relief to your Daughter!

As to the cost? Many Dental offices have "in-house financing", generally with a third party, which your Daughter can very easily sign up for and be approved for. When you call around for Dentist ask about if they'll a) work on the tooth, and b) if they have in-house financing...

I think after a couple calls or so, you'll soon have a Dentist to work on your Daughter's tooth if you ask these questions.

I certainly hope she gets relief soon!

Dr. Rampton

Let me know if you have any further concerns - OK? And, do rate my answer please - Thanks.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
