Can’t be much worse than the last set of chompers a supposed experienced technician made for me.

I've been lucky 2 sets of uppers since 1990, both still work fine. Covered by medical so not sure of the cost.

A three tooth bridge quote coupla weeks ago $4500-5,000 here in BC. I didn't even bother to ask about implants. From what I hear many Canadians get pricey work done in Mexico for much less than here.

While I came back into Arizona from shopping across the border I saw several people waiting in line with swollen and bleeding mouths. Apparently there are many ‘quicky shops where they push customers through as fast as they can, knowing there’s little likelihood they will be coming back.

A good point Lew. Due diligence in all things. Go to any dentist only on referral from a trusted friend/relative... even in this country.
