The bill? Equivalent to $420. Yikes! The work was first class, but the cost
Guess I'll do it in the UK next time . . . I'm not much of a consumer of health care
services so far (thank God) so unused to this problem . . .
WOW! Is that some type of special foreigner price
? What did they use for filling?
I still have some fillings I got in Mexico
30+ years ago as a kid. I think they were $5 each.
