So my husband and I both had dental appointments today at 1:00. We got called back at 1:05, which I didn’t think was too bad. I got a good cleaning and so did my husband, he also had two fillings done. We were out and on our way home at 1:45. I couldn’t believe it! I have never spent that little time in a dentist office. The dentist was very nice and speaks pretty good English. I feel very lucky to be here, we couldn’t afford dental insurance in the States and here it is all covered in the Social Security program, which is the equivalent to their health insurance. For the both of us we pay about $94 a month and it is based off of your income. I think it is a great program that they have here. Soon I will be going to the hospital in one of the major cities to see a specialist about my back, this is completely covered as well, we have to pay nothing out-of-pocket. There are no co-pays here once you have your residency. Worst case scenario, if I were to have to need surgery for my back, it is completely covered as well. I like it this way.
