One of my pet dislikes is not getting value for money.

I lost part of a tooth on a recent week long fishing trip and had treatment to fix it after I got back to civilization.
After that was done I got hm to do a clean and polish which as the start of some other dramas with my teeth.

For some reason I ended up with an abscess which was temporarily cured with a coarse of anti biotics.
Once the infection subsided the dentist recommended I have root control treatment on the tooth.

Because it was a large  tooth with two nerves running through it, two visits were recommended for treatment.
After first bit of treatment infection resurfaced so it was back on antibiotics again before treatment could recommence.
After second treatment completed I was told another visit was necessary to complete treatment in 6 weeks time.
Well half way through that waiting period the tooth has played up again so I'm back to the dentist this morning.
The Dentist now says the tooth may have to come out. I'll be happy with that decision if that what he does.
Now my worry is will he give me a partial refund on the $1400 I've already outlayed on this one tooth or will he now charge me extra for the possible extraction?  :rant:

I'll let you know soon.

Well back from the dentist minus the problem tooth.

Not sure if my good dentist read my blog but he has refunded all costs associated with root canal treatment and charged me only for extraction $144.

That has restored my faith with my Dentist and fattened my punting bank  :)

The orthodontist that has treated both my daughters has had a regular monthly deduction paid into his account for many years now.

I always doubted that there was anything wrong with their teeth.

You sound like you have a rare pearl there Mono i.e. a dentist who isn't overservicing, or if he does, he refunds your money. Hang on to him mate.

You're correct in regards to him being a pearl.

As he said he was well within his rights to keep payment for services rendered thus far but said he as happy to wear the cost.
He knows I'm a punter and giggled when I said to him he wouldn't last as a bookie.
Not Only did he refund my fees, on leaving he presented me two vouchers for free coffee and cake at a local coffee house.    emthup

  :lol:  Henry and yes I did think of that but at my age I don't think coffee and another piece of cake will add to my dental problems.

A non racing fan relative of mine has decided to bring some joy into my very busy life by rocking up from Sydney to my place Saturday ( Derby Day ) of all days.
He heads home Wednesday morning after I drop him off at the airport.

Now I really do enjoy their company but my mind and attentive skills will be on other things for those few days.
I don't know whether I should just tell him the timing of his visit is not good and risk alienating our friendship or forget about how much I love the Flemington part of the carnival and be a good and gracious host.

Well it's taken me a while to come to terms with my decision but my cousin will get over it  :baby:

Mono, your repeated tooth abscesses may reflect your insistence on drinking XXXX Lite which is high on carbs that feed the bacteria in your mouth and low on alcohol that cleans like a mouth rinse.  Normally I would recommend switching to full strength beer, but since your mouth flora seems to be recalcitrant over its wont to cause problems, you should switch to spirits immediately. An hourly swig of overproof Bundy taken with coke zero during your waking hours should be enough to solve your problem.  You can enjoy a lot of nips for $1400.

Thanks for that advice Ascot and you are right.
My Gold consumption over the last 2 years has decreased considerably since I left that mafia encrusted suburb I once resided in.

Now I havent sipped a rum since I got 3 months probabtion for aggravated assault back when my my Testosteron levels were running wild.
My preferred after beer drink now is a good scotch.

Goldie his preferred sport is Rugby....Welsh Rugby so with them being out of calculations for the World Cup I cannot arrange to lob on his doorstep and interupt his favourite sport for another 4 years.
