Time is of the Essence
When you wake up because your tooth is throbbing–time stands still. Sixteen-year-old Selena told her mom right away and her mom’s heart sank. Her mother, Lupe, was immediately concerned, not only because her daughter was in pain, but because they had just lost their insurance when they moved into L.A. County.
Lupe called Young & Healthy by 10:00 am and by 1:00 pm Selena was sitting in a dental chair on the same day. By 1:30 pm the dentist called saying that Selena would need a root canal and a crown. Within two days she had an appointment with an oral surgeon and a crown was ordered.
Sometimes the speed of service makes all the difference. Most important, get a child out of pain, THEN tackle the insurance issues. First things first.
