As someone who’s lived abroad most of my life, US may have top notch research, intelligence/workforce, and technology in healthcare - which is great and appreciated - for common every day average folks (majority of the country) it’s so incomparably behind times. A lot of health and it’s healthy habits start around identifying issues while it’s minor and rectifying that, but that’s hard to do when you have one chance to see a doctor once a year for 15minuted, when you have to wait half a year to get allocated a spot at the dentist for your uncomfortable but manageable yet growing tooth aches. Also when there are billing issues etc, the time and effort it takes to resolve every single thing properly… wow. Just for context to OP - my aunt chipped her teeth and has nerve damage and can’t eat solids right now, and was told by every dentist in her town that they’re not available till March 2022. She had to drive an hour to the next towns dentist to barely get a quick appointment. It’s painful to see her in pain and not get any immediate treatment for it..

Regan!

Problem with dental offices is they book all their existing patients for a cleaning 6 months out. If you keep looking at the dental practices in your network and find one that recently added a new dentist to their practice, that’s probably your best bet as they’re still building their client base

I got a cleaning, consultation and wisdom teeth done in about 1.5 months from initial call - NYC based so idk what your talking about

I found something for the next day using zocdoc!

A5 in West palm beach FL I got wisdom tooth removed in 2 days. Took me 2 hours of my time to call all the dental offices near by and realized they don’t have any appointments available until next weekend. Quick google search helped me to book an appointment at west palm beach drove 3 hours and got it removed stayed at friends place for a day and I am all set.

We live with a healthcare system where patients are considered consumers so access to good healthcare is difficult unless you have a lot of money

^💯💯💯 ppl who disagree tend to not see the many many invisible obstacles that are in place for those in lower SES to access proper and timely health care.

I think dentists are super swamped because people went so long without going and also more dental issues due to that! Says the person who just went for the first time in 2 years due to covid starting when my next apt was supposed to be …

😅 tough times

Are you in DC? My dentist has a system where if people cancel day of, they send out a mass patient email and you can book yourself into a slot online immediately. If you can be flexible you’ll definitely get in in the next few weeks. Happy to share his name if you’re here.

Appreciate you but I am in SF
