This is my first ever root canal - and apparently it's going to take a couple of sittings to do. However, $1,000 seems really steep: I was wincing at the fact that this is going to cost me about $400 altogether!
This guys really cutting me a deal. It was $800 to pull, post, & rebuild the remnant w/ temp cap... and then only $200 for a cheapy enamel cap that'll come in a couple of weeks.
I went w/ a cheapy cap because it's a back tooth that no one really sees.
IIRC he charged me $700 for a root canal.
At least for my area his prices are really low - he actually sets aside seperate days to do welfare patients and the homeless because he's not in it for the bucks (at least not anymore). He's an old timer that owns his own practice and the mini-complex that houses it + he's got a magnificent younger wife.
He actually offered to do some bartering w/ me on this visit if I help him out w/ a Spanish language infomercial he currenty runs on Telemundo weekend mornings. He's hoping for a snappy edit version from me because right now it hardly has any edits at all, reportedly.
As of right now I've only promised to watch it this weekend and offer some notes - considering I don't speak Spanish (which he's aware of) it should be interesting.
