Very frustrated that my child has had a cavity over a year and u kept cleaning teeth and not making the filling a priority.
the dentist my child really liked changed... Im sure the dentist now is as good ... but why not make it priority to take care of cavities.. i realize an apt with a dental hygienist is different but i understood we would see a dentist... and we would comein to a full reception area and get a cleaning. I have to take time off work.. and i live on a VERY small budget. so it hurts our household budget when i am not working. i dont want to be on Mainecare but we are... yesterday u did finally do Cassandra's cavity. I am the working poor.. so i am grateful but my children need better care.. unfortunately i didnt qualify with help for childcare and i did rely on family that didnt MAKE them brush. If u look at their record.. I started them at a dentist before 2yrs old and did great. but when i am working.. i cant be everywhere and their dental health has paid the price. makes me feel defeated. their father and I both took the afternoon off to get this cavity its attention it deserved. THANK u for the teeth charts... but please... i realize how important dental care is but putting food on the table and oil in the tank unfortunately makes me change apt and stay at work. my children should be off 'services' in less than a year. It has been a difficult road as their FATHER has all he needs.. but my household struggles. THank u for reading this. Sorry.. but I have not been satisfied for a year now.. but i dont say anything because I AM A POOR social worker.. and it is embarrassing. thank u for accepting mainecare. please make cavities more important.. my children do need to brush .. sorry i have failed. Very bad day yesterday. I went to work at 730 worked till 9 and took my break from 130 to 430 to be lectured at your office... it was necessary.. but see the whole picture. I really am trying to do my best. again, thank u for reading this.
