Hi JP:

About a year ago, I broke a tooth too, and the bill was $2,500. I was
lucky that just a month before my wife had put me on her dental
insurance (through her work), and I only had to pay $500.

Getting any health insurance to accept you and pay after you have a
problem is going to be next to impossible. Many dentists will agree to
a lower fee if you tell them that you are are willing to pay in cash
(as in $20 bills) because most don't report cash income on their
taxes, but others will actually try to charge you more, so you will
have to visit several.

Good luck. I know how painful a broken tooth is.
